West Bromwich Albion could recall Jack Fitzwater from his loan at Walsall in January, according to Birmingham Live.

The 21-year-old defender is due to spend the season with the League One side but could be made part of the Baggies’ first-team plans after impressing so far in this campaign.

Darren Moore’s side will make a decision as to whether to recall him during the January transfer window.

Fitzwater, who has never made a senior appearance for West Brom, started his career with the Baggies and rose through the youth ranks at the Hawthorns.

He gained his first taste of first-team football during a loan spells as a youngster at both Chesterfield and Hednesford Town during the 2015/16 campaign.

Fitzwater then spent the first half of last season at League Two side Forest Green Rovers and played 22 times for them in their debut in the Football League before returning to West Brom last January.

The Baggies loaned him out to Walsall for the rest of the campaign and he settled in well into the Saddlers’ backline. Fitzwater then re-signed for the third tier side on a season-long loan for this campaign and has so far played every league game for them.

He has shown that he is capable of the step up to the Championship, hence why West Brom are considering recalling him. If they did bring him back, he would add depth to their defensive options which would come in handy for their likely promotion charge during the second-half of the season.
