West Brom boss Hodgson eager to loan out Sam Mantom
The midfielder spent time at Tranmere and Oldham last season.
"We have another player in Mantom, where it is a mystery to me why I don't get hundreds of requests every day asking for him," Hodgson told the WBA website.
"One day somebody will explain to me why.
"If I needed a player in midfield and I was outside the Premier League he would be high up on my list of players to get."
