West Brom have seen exactly how successful a well-orchestrated loan spell can be for their up and coming talent this season. 

Callum Morton came flying out of the blocks when he joined Northampton Town in January, and his rich vein of form in front of goal was a crucial factor in the club winning promotion to League One.

Now, as revealed by West Brom News, he is being earmarked for a new deal at The Hawthorns and looks set for a big future at the club.

And it would appear that a number of other Albion youngsters could be following in his footsteps by heading out in search of regular senior football.

According to the Birmingham Mail, former Baggies boss Jimmy Shan is keen on taking Rayhaan Tulloch, Nick Clayton-Phillips, and Jamie Soule on loan to current club Solihull Moors this summer.

The report does also state West Brom could resist the move, however.

And that would probably go down well among many fans judging by reactions on social media.

A lot of supporters seem open to the prospect of the trio going out on loan, but have also been quick to point out that they are more than capable of playing at a higher level than the National League.

And we would absolutely be inclined to agree.

With Tulloch in particular, we’re talking about a player who has just signed a new long-term deal at the club, and who has been singled out as one “ready to make his mark” on the first team by The Athletic journalist Steve Madeley.

Allowing him to drop all the way down to the National League would surely be a detrimental step for his development.

A move to League One should be the minimum aim, and the Championship certainly shouldn’t be out of the question either.

No offence to Shan, but these three deserve their chance at EFL football.

Here are some of the best tweets from West Brom fans:
