West Brom youngster Rayhaan Tulloch is “ready to make his mark on senior football” next season, according to The Athletic journalist Steve Madeley.
The 19-year-old put pen to paper on a new long-term contract with Albion earlier this month – a deal that should keep him at The Hawthorns until at least 2024.
And now that his future is secure, Madeley believes that he is ready to take the next step in his career by getting regular senior minutes under his belt, even if that means sending him out on loan.
Writing in a piece for The Athletic, he said: “Rayhaan Tulloch looked set to leave the club for much of the season, only for a change of heart in recent weeks to lead to the signing of a new contract.
“Now, even though the young winger is unlikely to figure too much in the first team, he seems ready to make his mark on senior football.
“That could be as a substitute for Bilic’s side or, more likely, on loan back in the Championship.”
There is plenty to be excited about when it comes to Tulloch.
For a long time it looked as if the starlet was destined for the exit door this summer, with Rangers heavily linked with a potential move.
But now that he has committed his future to the Baggies, there’s no denying that he has the potential to become a real asset for Slaven Bilic’s men.
The youngster scored nine goals and made four assists in 14 Premier League 2 outings this term, and was so impressive for the U23s that he has been shortlisted for Player of the Season in that division.
As Madeley argues here, his time is coming, and it’s incredibly exciting to think about where he could end up if realises his obvious potential.
