Just In : West Brom confirm another injury boost as fantastic star now spotted in training

West Brom’s Reyes Cleary, a striker who has been sidelined due to an injury since April, has returned to first-team training at a time when the club is facing a shortage of attacking options.

Reyes Cleary, the West Brom striker, is now back in first-team training, which comes as a relief given Albion’s current lack of attacking choices. Cleary had sustained a significant hamstring injury towards the end of the previous season and has yet to make an appearance in the current campaign, which began in August.

Even now, as he participates in training sessions alongside other academy talents to bolster Carlos Corberan’s first-team preparations, Cleary, who has an impressive track record with 52 goals in 61 appearances at various youth levels, will need more time to regain full fitness.

Despite having six senior appearances to his name, including a couple of starts in the EFL Cup under Steve Bruce in the previous season and some outings in the Championship under interim manager Richard Beale, Cleary has been unavailable to Albion since his remarkable hat-trick in a 5-1 PL2 victory against Derby County in April.

Photographs on the official West Brom website confirm that Cleary is back in training with the rest of the squad, alongside other young talents like Kevin Mfuamba and Reece Hall.

Carlos Corberan had commented on Cleary’s recovery back in September, noting that the striker would require under 21 minutes of playing time to aid in his rehabilitation and match fitness buildup before being considered for first-team duties.

Corberan stated, “He is still in the recovery process, and a player who has been out for a long-term injury will need time. We had initially planned to loan him out this season for the experience, but unfortunately, we couldn’t do so due to his injury. As soon as he recovers from the injury, he will join the under-21s team because I believe he still needs further development before being part of the first-team squad. Currently, one of the forwards who is providing an option is Tom Fellows, a player who hasn’t played yet but will be integrated into the first-team squad.”
