West Bromwich Albion No2 Michael Appleton says they're pleased with the form of Chris Wood on-loan at Birmingham City.

Appleton has hinted Wood is a long-term prospect for the Baggies.

Speaking about Wood's future beyond his loan, which ends in November, Appleton told the Birmingham Mail: "That's the time you start thinking about whether you want to bring players in January and whether there are players likely to leave.

"When his loan is up, we will make decisions on whether he stays on, comes back or goes elsewhere."
