West Brom’s highly rated young forward Rayhaan Tulloch is open to staying at the club despite failing to agree terms on a new contract.
More talks are planned between the England U18 international and the Championship pacesetters as they look to find common ground amid interest from rival clubs.
Despite reports that 19-year old Tulloch is asking for over £10,000 a week, it is understood the player and his representatives are more realistic in their demands.

Tulloch is out of contract in the summer but has a strong attachment to Albion after progressing through the ranks to star for the club’s U23s and forcing his way into Slaven Bilic’s first team plans.
Albion have a rich history of producing top homegrown talent and want him to stay. However, they have seen some of their younger players reject offers before as they seek richer terms.
Louie Barry left for Barcelona last summer before joining rivals Aston Villa in January while Nathan Ferguson turned down a contract offer and saw a move to Crystal Palace fall through due to injury last month.
