West Brom Forward Rayhaan Tulloch could be on loan next month amid growing interest from League One clubs.

The talented 20-year-old has been on the bench for Albion as they pursue a return to the premier league and manager Valérien Ismael will take stock of his situation in the coming weeks.

Ismael believes Tulloch can gain more advantages by getting regular competitive playing time elsewhere as long as Albion has enough strength in depth for his offense.

“We will assess the situation,” Ismael told the Shropshire Star when asked if Tulloch could be loaned out next month.

The Baggies boss, 46, believes the youngster has the potential to make the first team in the future, but a move away to get regular action could be on the agenda.

‘Rayhaan is, for sure, one of those (high potential) players.

“But for the moment, it’s more about regaining confidence in his body, training regularly, playing regularly, and the 23 are there to give him the opportunity to play (if he does not move in ready).

Valérien Ismael believes Tulloch will benefit from temporary withdrawal from the club

Tulloch has already suffered a serious hamstring injury and is likely to leave on loan

“We will see improvement week after week.”

Tulloch has only played a minute of playing time so far this season, in the 2-1 win over the Blackburn Rovers in August.

Plymouth Argyle, Sheffield Wednesday, MK Dons and Fleetwood are monitoring all developments with former England U18 international Tulloch, who has long been seen as a youngster with great potential.

He was previously on loan from Doncaster Rovers to suffer a serious hamstring injury. Tulloch has worked hard to get back to sharpness and now wants to get a set of games.
