Albion head coach Graham Potter has given an update on Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo.

Andone has been out since June with a knee ligament injury he suffered whilst he was out on loan at Galatasaray.

Last month, he stepped on the pitch for the first time and posted a picture on social media of him on the turf with the accompanying message: “After six months I touched again the field, only for ten minutes but those ten minutes made me the day.”

Potter was asked when Andone could return to action, to which he replied: “Florin is making good progress. He’s working hard. It’s always been February/March time for him realistically, with the nature of his injury.

“Because he’s been out for a long time, I wouldn’t want to put an exact timescale on it. Depends how he reacts to certain things.”

Izquierdo has not played for the first team this season but has featured five times for Simon Rusk's U23’s in the BPL 2, where has scored once and got an assist.

However, last month he suffered a setback, after picking up a hamstring issue.

But Potter was unsure when he will feature in the Premier League.

He said: “Jose is a little bit more tricky because he is nearly getting there, then has a little step back.

“He was training with the group today, recovered from his little setback, so he is in a better moment. and then it’s just about building up the game time for him.

“The trick and the challenge will be to get him up to match speed to deal with the demands of the Premier League when he has been out for so long. That’s what we are going to try to do.”
