West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis has revealed why they had to release Brendan Galloway from his season-long loan deal.
The Zimbabwe-born player joined West Brom from Everton FC on on-loan at the beginning of the current season, but he could only make three English Premier League (EPL) appearances.
The Baggies have since sent Galloway back to his parent club and Pulis says the 21-year-old player will be playing for Everton Under-23 side, who are competing for the EPL U23 title.
“We are allowing Brendan to play in three very, very important games for their 23s,” Pulis told qwba.co.uk.
“He’s an absolute pleasure to work with and we enjoy having him with us and working with him," he continued.
Galloway, who is an England youth international, was competing with Cameroonian Allan Nyom in the left-back position at West Brom.
“Of course he would have wanted to play more but he has found it very difficult in competition with Allan Nyom and Chris Brunt performing so well there.
Galloway is yet to represent England's senior national team and he's still eligible to play for Zimbabwe's Warriors.
