Albion have Burnley to thank for beating Fulham on Monday night in a result that ensures the Cottagers will take up the third and final relegation spot this term.

For Graham Potter and his side, attention can now turn towards building themselves up ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, and one man who the manager is seemingly eager to keep hold of in the coming months is Danny Welbeck.

The experienced striker has been in good form of late, and the Albion boss is hopeful that he will extend his stay on the south coast.

Speaking recently, he said: “On the pitch he’s got actions that are high-end Premier League level.

“The goal that he scored against Leeds, we see pretty regularly in terms of how he can finish and his quality to affect the final third.

“He’s in a really good moment. He’s enjoying his football and in training he looks like he’s an 18-year-old, just influencing the game, influencing training, enjoying himself, I think that’s the most important thing.

“We will sit down at the end of the season and try and find the right solution but for me as a head coach, it’s about him enjoying his football, does he feel comfortable here?

“Does he enjoy it? Are we getting the best out of him?

“If the answer is yes, then there’s a good chance in the summer we can find the right solution.”
