Gus Poyet has not ruled out keeping Filipe Morais, despite the on-trial winger’s limited chances in Portugal.

Morais got just 15 minutes of action in two games on the Algarve, from where Poyet and his squad returned last night.

The former Millwall flyer came off the bench in the 1-1 draw with Sunderland but saw his chances of doing likewise against Portimonense end when the game was abandoned.

Poyet was non-committal on Morais’s chances of securing the return south he craves but said: “I thought he did okay. It’s not just games, it’s training, but it’s not just how he did, it’s what we need, the contract, so many things. We had a busy week. People read ‘Portugal’ and think ‘holiday’ but it was not a holiday. We had ten or 11 training sessions and two games.”

Wales under-21 defender Aaron Morris, released by Cardiff recently, is believed to be on his way to Albion for a trial. The 20-year-old has been trying his luck at Exeter of late.

Albion’s only remaining senior friendly is at home to Aberdeen on Saturday, though the club are sending a young side to face Eastbourne Town at the Saffrons tonight (7.45pm). Andrew Whing is the most senior player likely to feature while Poyet will also take a look at Jack MacFarlane, a 16-year-old released by Southampton and former Brentford keeper Clark Masters, 22.

Meanwhile, former Albion keeper John Sullivan could secure a loan move from Millwall to Yeovil after his performance in a 3-2 friendly victory over Manchester United reserves on Saturday. Free agent Adam Virgo, looking to secure a deal at Huish Park, headed the winner.
