Leeds United were keen on West Bromwich Albion ace who could soon be available.

The Express and Star report it is 'highly likely' West Bromwich Albion's Sam Field will be loaned out to a Championship club in January.

Field has played in only two of the Baggies 11 Premier League matches so far, with manager Tony Pulis using the 19-year-old sparingly.

The teenage midfielder signed a contract extension at The Hawthorns last week and is set on proving himself at West Brom, but he also needs to play regular football.

Field is an England under-20 international midfielder, who has also represented the Three Lions at under-19 and under-18 levels.

Hope for Leeds United

The reports Field will likely be available for loan is potentially good news for Leeds United.

The Birmingham Mail reported in January this year that Leeds attempted to bring Field to Elland Road on loan, but the midfielder chose to stay and fight for his place.

He struggled to make the jump, making only five appearances between the close of the transfer window and the end of the season.

Field may view it was worth the gamble, but he is unlikely to resist the chance to go on loan and develop this time around.

If Leeds midfielder Mateusz Klich is unable to step up between now and January after a poor start, adding Sam Field could be a shrewd move for the Whites.

If they don't, it is 'highly likely' that one of their Championship rivals will.
