West Bromwich Albion winger Oliver Burke has been dealt another blow, after not even being involved with Scotland’s under-21 squad.

When Burke broke through at Nottingham Forest he was expected to be a key player for his country in the future.

 

However, Burke has struggled ever since a move to Germany failed to work out as expected.

The West Brom man has made just one appearance for Darren Moore’s side this season, and now seemingly needs a move away from the Hawthorns.

For Burke to not have even made Scotland’s under-21 squad is yet another sign of just how far he has fallen in recent times.

And the winger must be feeling that an exit from West Brom in January is now needed for the good of his career.

Scotland’s under-21 side are next in action tomorrow evening, when they take on England.
