West Bromwich Albion are considering prematurely ending Brendan Galloway’s season-long loan at the club, with a replacement already lined up, according to The Telegraph.

The England under-21 international could return to his parent club, Everton, in January, having endured a frustrating spell at The Hawthorns.

Galloway joined the club back in August, with the aim of earning more first-team opportunities.  However, playing time has been hard to come by, with the 20-year-old’s last appearance for the Baggies coming nearly two months ago, during their 4-2 win over West Ham United.

Manager Tony Pulis has often opted to play Allan Nyom, who is a right back, out of position on the opposite side of defence.

It is believed that Pulis is ready to make a move for Leeds United left-back Charlie Taylor, who is seen as the ideal candidate to fill that position, once the transfer window re-opens.

Taylor has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and had a transfer request turned down following interest from a hot of clubs.

Galloway, meanwhile, was close to joining Newcastle United in the summer, before West Brom came calling. A number of Championship sides may show an interest in the Englishman, should he be made available for another loan deal.
