West Brom look set to keep ahold of two of their most prized assets this summer.
According to the Birmingham Mail, West Brom have tied down the futures of Tyler Roberts and Jonathan Leko, with manager Tony Pulis confirming that they will be allowed their chance to fight for first-team football.
The Baggies have suffered in recent years through losing talented youth products, with the likes of Izzy Brown, Jerome Sinclair and Yan Dhanda all heading off to more illustrious Premier League rivals.
However, Saido Berahino has remained with the club, and has proven himself as a talented Premier League level striker despite being just 21-years-old.
It is this example that Pulis is giving to Leko and Roberts, and the report claims that they have been convinced to remain at the Hawthorns so as to ensure first-team football at a consistent level to aid their development.
Roberts, a 17-year-old striker, was named on the bench by Pulis on the final day of the Premier League season, although he did not enter the field of play in the 4-1 defeat, it is clear that he is seen as a big talent.
Leko, a 16-year-old forward, is highly rated in the Baggies set-up as well. He travelled to Arsenal and to the game against Manchester United at Old Trafford, having been a regular in Albion’s Under-21 team this season.
This is certainly good news for West Brom, especially in relation to the number of youngsters leaving in recent years, and it appears as if Pulis’s show of faith could prove vital in ensuring the future of the club is one that moves forward.
