Ben Dickenson is set to follow George Barker through the exit door at Albion.
Dickenson is likely to leave the club during the January transfer window, either on loan again or possibly for good, The Argus understands.
Barker made a permanent move recently to Swindon Town.
Hibernian are among the clubs keen on fellow forward Dickenson who, like, Barker, has been unable to make a breakthrough into the first team from the development squad.
The versatile 20-year-old, deployed in the development squad as a winger and also sometimes through the middle, has already had two spells on loan at Chesterfield and AFC Wimbledon since Albion bought him from Dorchester Town last year.
Dickenson reportedly impressed Hibs boss Terry Butcher and chief scout Steve Marsella in a development friendly at Aston Villa on Monday.
Albion signed winger Jeffrey Monakana from Preston this week.
The former Arsenal flyer is expected to emerge as a likelier first team candidate than Dickenson, having already made over 40 appearances in League One for Preston and on loan to Colchester.
