Graham Potter is hoping to have another attacking option for the Premier League run-in.

The Albion head coach wants to see what Jose Izquierdo can offer for the first time under his command.

Potter has always been reluctant to put a time frame on the Colombia winger’s comeback from knee surgery.

But he has hinted he could see him during the current break in Premier League fixtures.

Izquierdo has not played since the closing weeks of the Chris Hughton tenure at the end of last season.

Asked whether the winger had made any headway in his long battle for fitness, Potter told The Argus: “He has. He has made some good progress.

“We are hopeful he can come into the team a little bit more in the next week or two. We will see how he is.

"He has been working hard with the physio and is making good progress.”

A fully-fit Izquierdo would offer another attacking option for Albion although any contribution he can make this season is likely to be considered a bonus.

Alexis Mac Allister will add to the goal-making resources Potter has as Albion build towards the trip to Sheffield United next Saturday.

Mac Allister is now in Sussex and settling into his new surroundings during the break in league fixtures.

He has been learning English and said he has established “a base” in the language on which to build now he is in the country.
