West Brom boss offers Daryl Dike timeline and makes January transfer window hint

West Brom boss hopes to have striker Daryl Dike back available in the New Year.

West Brom signed Dike, 23, from Orlando City in January 2022. But since, the USMNT striker has made just 25 Championship appearances for the Baggies, scoring seven times.

He’s sustained three long-term injuries now and is currently working his way back from an Achilles injury sustained vs Stoke City in April this year.

But speaking to Express & Star, Baggies boss Carlos Corberan says that he hopes to have Dike back in the New Year, whilst also hinting that his side will look to bolster in the January transfer window as well.

“He’s very committed with his recovery, but it’s a very long-term injury, so he’s one player that I cannot expect to play until January,” said Corberan.

“He will be one of the new players for January, in the January market we will add to the squad.”

West Brom spent no money on transfers in the summer. Corberan was limited to free and loan signings whilst the club looked to offload.

Dara O’Shea was the only player sale in the end, but other were seemingly up for grabs in Grady Diangana, Nathaniel Chalobah, and Brandon Thomas-Asante.

Dike back for West Brom

Dike showed glimpses of a very top player when he was fit for West Brom last season.

It’s been a really tough time for him and he’ll of course be hoping that he can put his injuries behind him now, and really press on with his career.

And for West Brom and Corberan, Dike will be like a new signing when he returns, with Corberan currently having just Thomas-Asante fit and available in attack.

And expect the Baggies to look at bringing in one or two new players in the New Year, like Corberan suggests, so for the Baggies, the second half of the season could be a promising one.
