Werder Bremen are hoping to cut short on-loan West Brom striker Yuning Zhang’s two-year deal with the club.
The Express and Star report that the striker has been unable to hold down a regular place in the German side this season.
The 21-year-old is also unable to play for the club’s youth side, meaning game time has limited for the striker the Baggies signed from Vitesse last summer.
Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann confirmed that both clubs are looking at their options.
We’re trying to find a solution that Yuning plays in the U23s, so if that does not work, we’ll have to deal with other options. Yuning has not played for a whole year, so another season would make little sense.
Zhang is also unable to play in the Premier League or the Championship if the Baggies were to go down.
With China ranked outside of top 50 countries in the world Zhang does not qualify for a work permit.
The Baggies are hoping to agree on terms to cut the deal short before loaning him out again to another European club, where game time will be more regular.
