The Stourbridge-born starâ€™s form was closely monitored by Albionâ€™s coaches who are convinced he can make the step up into the Premier League.
â€śSamâ€™s got a bright future,â€ť assistant boss Keith Downing told the Sunday Mercury. â€śWe have always felt we needed to give him time. His physique is getting better and he is a late developer.
â€śWe have shown patience and Sam is a very focused young boy who really does work hard every day.
â€śIâ€™m very optimistic that Sam will have a very good career and working with top-class players can only help.â€ť
