Adil Nabi scores a brace for West Brom's U21s, but what does the future hold for him?

A young West Bromwich Albion striker scored twice for the club's under-21s this week.

West Bromwich Albion’s under-21 side defeated their Arsenal counterparts 3-0 on Tuesday and the Baggies had striker Adil Nabi to thank for the emphatic score-line

The 21-year-old scored two goals while the young side’s captain Jack Fitzwater netted the other, but there remains an air of mystery regarding the striker's Hawthorns future.

Nabi’s current deal ends this summer, and despite being named on the bench three times this season he is yet to make his senior debut. He is also getting alarmingly close to the end of a contract extension he signed back in 2013.

The West Brom youngster scored his first from a tight angle before netting a penalty shortly after to end the game as a contest.

Nabi has played a total of 69 games for West Brom’s under-21 side, scoring 23 goals and providing 11 assists in that time. But for now that has not been a record that has earned him the nod from first-team manager Tony Pulis.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for the young Englishman, but with an impressive strike-rate at that level, he could yet see his West Brom stay extended.
