Rayhaan Tulloch seems happy to stay at West Bromwich Albion amid uncertainties over his contract, with his current deal nearing expiration.
Reports had suggested that the highly-rated 19-year-old forward is likely to leave the Baggies when his contract expires at the end of the season due to an ongoing dispute over his earnings.
However, according to the Daily Mail, Tulloch is willing to extend his stay at the Hawthorns and they report that suggestions him demanding £10k-a-week are wide of the mark.
The report claims that further contract negotiations are expected to take place as the Baggies look to find common ground with their Under-23 starlet.
READ WEST BROM VERDICT
With another 19-year-old prospect in Nathan Ferguson expected to depart the Hawthorns for a relatively cheap fee in the summer, it could be seen as borderline humiliating to lose another young talent in the same period.
Tulloch has been mightily impressive for the U23s this season, scoring nine goals and providing four assists in just 14 Premier League 2 games.
His exciting form has also earned him first-team minutes this term, as he made two appearances in the FA Cup, which suggests that Slaven Bilic likes what the young man can offer.
With Louie Barry leaving for Barcelona before joining Aston Villa recently and now Ferguson’s impending move in mind, I think the Baggies will probably be desperate to keep Tulloch within their ranks.
It’d be a major blow to let another talented prospect slip through the club’s grasp. However, I don’t believe West Brom will crumble if demands are too high from the player or his agent.
