According to Football League World journalist Jamie Denley, Nathaniel Chalobah may seek a “new challenge elsewhere” and leave West Brom in January.
The midfielder joined Fulham on an 18-month agreement in January of this year, with his contract expiring next summer.
He has made 19 appearances for the Baggies, with six of those coming this season under Carlos Corberan.
“A late January arrival, Chalobah’s time at the club has not gone to plan so far and he nearly left this summer,” Football League World’s Denley wrote.
“The former Chelsea and Fulham midfielder signed an 18-month contract and appeared 13 times as he struggled to break the existing Jayson Molumby and Okay Yokuslu partnership.”
“With the former England international struggling to break into the starting lineup at Maccabi Haifa, he may look to end his brief stay in the West Midlands and seek a new challenge elsewhere.”
It remains to be seen exactly what Corberan has planned for the former Chelsea and Watford midfielder at The Hawthorns.
The 28-year-old is by no means surplus to requirements, having been used by his manager in almost every West Brom match this season.
Whether it be from the start or from the bench, it seems that Chalobah does have a place in this current Albion squad.
But regular minutes do seem hard to come by, and the player may just want a more stable position on the pitch at this stage of his career.
A January exit could be on the cards, but for now all he can do is work hard behind the scenes and try and force his way into Corberan’s immediate thinking.
There is, of course, a long list of Championship matches between now and the January transfer window, and a lot can change between now and then.
