With the January transfer window opening in just a matter of days, the future of Nathan Ferguson is looking more and more likely to be away from West Brom.
Ferguson can sign a pre-contract agreement with another club in a matter of days. So do we… Drop him as he’s clearly on his way (and gives our other RB more experience) or play him anyway when required? #WBA

The English youth international is yet to put pen-to-paper on a new deal despite reports from The Athletic stating that the defender has had a hefty contract offer on the table, and supporters on social media are now starting to discuss what the club should do with Ferguson if he does sign a pre-contract agreement in January.
What should West Brom do about Ferguson's contract situation?
Offer him another long-term deal
Sell him on to a Premier League club in January
As stats from WhoScored show, Ferguson has been one of West Brom’s most important players this season, playing as both a left and right-back under Slaven Bilic this campaign with the Baggies sitting pretty at the top of the Championship table.
Here’s what West Brom fans had to say about Ferguson’s awkward position at the club on Twitter, with a few supporters unsure what the Albion should do about the teenager should he sign a pre-contract away from the Hawthorns…
Not sure about why we haven’t signed him up properly yet but he’s a cracking player and we should play him regardless, the lad has a hell of a lot of potential and if he leaves for bigger and better things then all the best to him

We dont necessarily know hes on his way, could go either way, drop him he could leave anyway, play him and he could sign. Its football nothing is certain these days.

Hopefully he will stay and sign a new contract. His attitude has been first class so makes no sense to drop him.

Play him & make the most of him giving him more experience & potentially higher value as it would only be for a short amount of time also a few games less for the next in line fella to get injured or tired. Of course ideally I’d love the guy to stay & get promoted for HIS club.

Play him and he might sign.
If not, sell before end of Jan.

Simple. Sell him.

West Brom are expected to be busy in the January transfer window, with The Athletic reporting that the Baggies are keen on Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen.
