George Thorne has had a transfer request rejected by West Bromwich Albion.

The Birmingham Mail says WBA have rejected a formal transfer request from midfielder Thorne.

It comes just a few days after Albion turned down a near £1 million offer from Derby County for the 21 year-old.

Clearly Thorne is losing patience despite the imminent appointment of a new Head Coach but having signed a new contract in January Albion are in no mood to see him moved along.
