UK: West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis has insisted that Brendan Galloway still has a future at the club, despite the 20-year-old not having played any football for the club since September.

Galloway's last appearance for the Baggies came in the impressive 4-2 home victory over West Ham when he was substituted for Allan Nyom, who although traditionally a right back has remained in the starting XI on the left side of defence ever since, at the expense of the England under-21 international.

​Speaking to the​ media, Pulis suggested that Galloway may return soon due to other players being at risk of one-match suspensions for having too many yellow cards.

"Brendan's been unlucky and he'll get his chance because we're now getting bookings, Daws has got four, if he gets booked again he'll miss a game so Galls will get his chance."

Despite affording limited game time the Zimbabwe-born left back, Pulis was complimentary of his young charge.

​"If he gets his chance, he's got to stay in the team... He's been smashing."

The defender has endured a mixed start to the season at the Hawthorns, after signing from Everton on a season-long loan.

​A day after the loan move was completed, Galloway played in West Brom's EFL Cup game away at Northampton Town, before starting the following three Premier League games.

However according to Tony Pulis, the defender's progress at West Brom has been halted due to the injury that occurred last month whilst on international duty with the under 21s.

"Obviously he had the problem when he went away and came back and that gave Nyom a chance. Nyom’s got a few bookings, Dawson is on four, so that could give Brendan his chance. He’s got to take it and make sure he plays well and stays in the team."

Galloway played the full 90 minutes in Thursday night's dramatic 3-2 for England U21s against Italy U21 at St Mary's stadium and was the victim of a heavy deflection, which allowed the Italians to equalise in the first half.
