West Brom sold Adil Nabi to Peterborough United yesterday, confirming his departure on Twitter.
It was a move met with criticism from the West Brom support, and rightly so, given how highly rated the young striker is.
The 21-year-old has never appeared for the Baggies’ first-team, although many fans wanted him to. He was used in pre-season by Tony Pulis, but the manager has continued to lack faith in youngsters, and sent him on loan to the ISL this term.
He scored three goals in nine games for the Delhi Dynamos, a respectable return for a support striker, and he leaves the Hawthorns as one of the best talents in English football.
Yet, for all this talent, West Brom opted to sell him this month - a mistake they are sure to regret.
Peterborough gives Nabi the perfect platform to impress upon, with League One football welcoming to his talents.
A good half-season will make him a valuable asset, and the Baggies look to have made the same error as they did at the end of last season.
Pulis has an extremely poor record for youth development, and it is known that he does trust youngsters in professional football.
However, Nabi looked to have the talent to break into the West Brom team, and the Baggies have surely made a huge mistake selling the young striker.
