    So he’ll be isolated, unhappy, unable to understand what the manager wants from him and most likely spend most of his time out of the team. I predict they’ll cut the loan short in January.

    He should be buckling down at WBA and trying to get his career back on track, not flying all round Europe becoming even more of a nomad journeyman.

    Alaves are also a club unlikely to be able to afford him if he does well so best case scenario it's a year long loan.

    The transfer record there is £3.5m

    Hopefully a cautionary tale for other youngsters, particularly those who might move before pro-contract.

    Wonder how much he'll go for.

    Crazy to think he's already racked up 28m worth of transfer fees for a 1 month spurt in the Champ

    Can he be classed as a journeyman yet?

    Out of contract at the end of the season, is that correct?

    Would be a good freebie, surely.

    That will be his loan contract mate. He signed a 5 year deal with the Baggies Aug 2017

    His bank balance has probably improved significantly. That’s about it.

    Burke, 22, will be out of contract with West Brom when his loan spell with Alaves ends - something he describes as "very difficult".

    "I've been there so long, but then I've not actually played many games for them, so you almost feel like you are not part of that team because I've been to other clubs and been on loan," he said.

    "I just have to focus on this loan I'm on now and take it all in and hopefully good things come from me going on loan now and getting game time. Hopefully it puts me in the shop window.

    "I'd love to be a club and be the first name on the team-sheet every week, but I think it will come in time. I'm still at a good age and I'm just doing everything I can to learn the game."

    If he is out of contract, and would take a wage cut (which I think he'd have to), I'd take him back. In fact I'd have him here in Jan if poss if they were looking to get a few quid for him.

    I mean I’m always for giving him another chance, the wages have to match tho.

    I doubt anyone would be clamouring for us to sign him if he wasn't an ex-player who had a decent spell for us in the past. He hasn't done anything for a few years now and has regressed a lot since he was here.

    I'd rather the club looked forwards than backwards, it's a no from me.

    Me too, there's a chance that playing in a Forest shirt brings the best out of him. He's got the pace we miss, he's tailor made for our counter & he knows where the net is.

    Worth a pop.

    I would love to see him back. Despite what the BBC might say,he's still got 2 years left on his contract. He's now acknowledging his future is no longer at West Brom so it's time for him to leave. Hopefully we might get him cheap. He seems to have played a lot of his time for Scotland and West Brom up front which hasn't suited him.He would give us genuine pace on the wing which we are crying out for. We have a history of players coming back and doing well(Birtles,Robertson,Walker,Dawson).Think it would be be a good move .

    If he plays to the level he can, then he's an upgrade on Ameobi. That seems forward looking enough for me. Unless we’ve got someone better lined up.

    He hasn't played at that level for about 3 years though. I'd rather us sign someone who has shown something recently than sign someone because they were half decent in 2016.

    Genuine question, would people be happy to buy him back for 13m? Because he's no bigger gamble than Carvalho was.

    A short period doing well in this league, a glimpse of young talent which needs nurturing & developing. Not much difference really.

    And with that in mind, would folk consider getting him for 4-6m instead?

    £4M to £6M seems about right. Yes, I would take a chance with him at that price. He as very special asset of pace and strength and he won't have lost any of that. He doesn't seem to have been used in the right way at West Brom and playing abroad is a big step which has left him a bit lost. I think he would be desperate to come back to us. It seems a good move or all concerned.
