LEANDRO Trossard has been praised by Albion manager Graham Potter after his recent performances.

The Belgian forward has been in good form for Albion this season, scoring three goals and assisting one more in his 13 Premier League performances.

With a bit more luck Trossard's stats would look much better, especially as he rattled the post against Leeds on Saturday.

Potter has praised the forward's hard work as the main reason for his success.

Potter told the media: "There's no magic wand, and it doesn't just happen, it's down to Leo, it's down to his work, his experiences, succeeding and failing and taking steps.

"That's what we want with all our players. We've got a good, young squad."

Potter then explained that Trossard's improvement is down to the club's strategy of player recruitment.

Albion have prioritised signing players from lower leagues or from abroad and then developing them into players that can perform for the first team.

Potter said: "That is a part of our strategy, with the greatest of respect if there is a player coming from Belgium or the Championship, or the under-23s.

"It is about seeing how we can get them to be a regular performer and top performer in the Premier League."

There will be hope from the club that current loan stars such as Abdallah Sima and Andi Zeqiri will be able to reach the heights Trossard has reached in the coming years.
