After a somewhat jittery start to the Championship campaign of 2018/19, West Bromwich Albion have got themselves into a decent attacking gear and we find ourselves in second place in the second tier table.

With the October international break in full swing we are only one point, at the moment, away from table toppers Sheffield United with seven wins from the opening 12 games and although there are some things to still address defensively, there’s also plenty to be positive about following relegation from the Premier League last season.

With real news thin on the ground, the Sun on Sunday published a piece at the weekend claiming that scouts from Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur were in attendance at our Under 23 EFL Trophy tie against Blackpool and that they were there to specifically look at Oliver Burke.

Newcastle & Spurs Apparently Eyeing West Brom Youngster

Although the 21-year-old’s time at the club so far has been disappointing given his game time, and with the arrival of Wes Hoolahan and Bakary Sako, we do have other options, it’s probably no surprise to see Burke linked with a departure – especially given recent links to Bradley Dack.

As the above comments show though, given our £15million outlay on him, plenty want to see him given a proper shot first before just moving him on as the boy clearly has talent, we just have to get it out of him.
