The young midfielder looks a bright prospect but has been offered his final chance to sign a new deal with the Baggies and has yet to put pen to paper.
Indeed, he was at Celtic on Sunday as we won the title and was shown around on a VIP tour so all the signs suggest he could well be our player soon.
And this latest report fuels that fire with the claim that he is not currently signing this last offer from the Baggies.
A bright player who is good on the ball, it seems apparent he wants to further his career quickly and with no Premier League football at the Hawthorns next season, staying around might not work for him.
We need new energy in the middle, too, so it could work nicely for all involved.
