Vela told no guarantees by West Brom of first team football

West Bromwich Albion cannot guarantee on-loan striker Carlos Vela regular football. Vela made the temporary switch from Arsenal in January but the Mexican has made only three starts for Albion.

Baggies first-team coach Michael Appleton said: "We don't know what kind of transfer fee Arsenal may or may not put on Carlos' head or whether the boy wants to come back to the football club.

"Maybe he'll just want to go somewhere he knows he is going to play every week.

"I don't think we are in a position where we can promise that.

"We've got a really competitive squad and want to make it even more competitive."
