The 23 year old impressed during his time at the Reebok Stadium and it was hoped that he would return if first team football proved elusive at The Hawthorns.
Freedman told the Bolton News: "I've made no contact with them since the beginning of the season, or just after.
"They said to me he is not coming out on loan and he's going to be in the squad every week, and he has been.
"I have spoken to his agent and he tells me Craig is very, very determined to make it in the West Brom side, so therefore I've not wasted a lot of energy running after that one. It feels like it's far away.
"He's a loan player who came in and credit to the scouting department because he was fantastic for us, just the same as Neil Danns or Kevin McNaughton.
"If it does change then, well, who wouldn't be interested?"
