West Brom have begun talks with both Kyle Edwards and Rayhaan Tulloch over securing the academy graduates to new long-term deals with the club.
The Express and Star report that the Baggies are keen on the two young attackers to commit their long-term futures with the club after both players have emerged as first-team players this season as stats from WhoScored show, with Tulloch’s impressing at U-23 level for West Brom this campaign.
West Brom have already been at the negotiating desk with Tulloch this season, though, with the report stating that the 19-year-old attacker has already turned down a new deal with the club, but the Baggies are willing to offer a new and improved contract for the teenage attacker who has been courted by some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Is West Brom's academy one of the best in England?
Football Insider claimed last month that the likes of Rangers, RB Leipzig and Marseille were all interested in Tulloch with the attacker only having six-months remaining on his current deal, yet the youngster was swayed to remain at West Brom after being handed his first few starts for the club in the FA Cup as stats from WhoScored show.
West Brom have a poor track record in recent months in being able to retain some of their most promising youth talents from the academy, with Louie Barry leaving for Barcelona last summer and Nathan Ferguson set to leave the club at the end of this season as a free agent as reported by The Express and Star, which is why the Baggies must ensure that Edwards and Tulloch sign new deals with the Albion.
The attacking duo have shown plenty of promise in their time on the pitch for West Brom, and with Premier League promotion potentially on the horizon for the Baggies, the club will need to ensure they can keep hold of their prized youngsters who could one day make it big in the first-team.
