ALBION star Leandro Trossard's agent has delivered a promising update on the player after his injury against Southampton.

The Belgian forward hurt his elbow during Saturday's 1-1 draw against the Saints, which led to him being stretchered off the pitch.

Trossard had fallen badly on his arm after a challenge from Southampton man Nathan Redmond. Treatment was given to him on the pitch as Trossard was given gas and air during his exit from the pitch.

Concern for the player was high in the aftermath as Albion are in the middle of an injury crisis, with as many as eight players currently dealing with complaints.

Trossard's agent however has suggested that he could be available for Albion's next Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur at the Amex Stadium on Sunday.

Albion manager Graham Potter believed that the injury may not be as bad as first thought, and that further assessment from club doctors will be needed before a date was set for Trossard's return to action.

His comeback could come quicker than originally expected as his agent, Josy Comhair, told Belgian news outlet Het Belang van Limburg (HBVL)

Comhair said: “I was present at the match together with Laura [Trossard's wife].

"Of course, we panicked for a while. Fortunately, we soon received confirmation that the injury is not too bad.

“Perhaps Leandro can play the next game.”

Potter will be hoping that Trossard's agent is correct as it would be one less position to be concerned about with the club's current injury list.
