Read West Brom cited Ethan Ingram and Zac Ashworth as two promising youngsters who have all but broken into the first-team and could be in and around the squad next season, but they aren’t the only ones.

Caleb Taylor has risen through the youth ranks to the fringes of the senior squad, making 36 appearances for the U18s, 29 appearances for the U23s and three appearances for the first-team.

The 19-year-old captains the reserve team and won the Premier League Cup this campaign, so he’s rated highly at the club. Taylor has stiff competition for a starting place at centre-back, however, so he might not get a lot of opportunities next season.

Steve Bruce is reverting to a back four and has Kyle Bartley, Semi Ajayi, Dara O’Shea, Cedric Kipre and Kean Bryan competing for two places, so Elias Burke of The Athletic says West Brom are weighing up loaning Taylor out so he can get regular playing time at a level suited to his ability.

The son of Martin Taylor joined West Brom with the U10s and is now knocking on the door of the first-team, so his future looks bright. A loan move next season could put him in position to start in 2023.
