The 25-year-old remains sidelined with ligament damage in his foot, and has yet to make an appearance this season. Burnley and Leeds United are said to be interested in the attacker despite his lack of availability, and the Baggies could allow him to leave should the right offer come in.
Adam Reach and Daryl Dike are long-term absentees, and both are still recovering. Reach is dealing with a quad injury, and his hopes of returning to action were dashed in the summer when he suffered a problem against Burton Albion. Carlos Corberan has tipped him to come back stronger but for the time being he remains out.
Daryl Dike is another player that is nursing an injury, and is out with an Achilles problem which is likely to see him miss the rest of the year.
Former Liverpool defender Martin Kelly meanwhile is closing in on a return to training, and should he not appear in the 20-man squad at the weekend, then he should target the first game back after the international break.
Reyes Cleary, who has made six appearances for the club, is stepping up in his recovery from an injury that has kept him sidelined since April.
Huddersfield will be without Ollie Turton who is rehabbing from an ACL injury which he suffered earlier this year. He is targeting a return for the New Year, but has admitted that it has 'been a struggle' having required two surgeries.
Neil Warnock meanwhile still has question marks over the full fitness of Yuta Nakayama He has recovered from an Achilles problem, and has been playing for their 'B' team to help with his prospects of more action for the senior team.
Huddersfield this week signed Ben Wiles from Championship rivals Rotherham United for a ‘significant’ undisclosed fee and could give him his debut. David Kasumu could appear this weekend for Huddersfield, but Tom Lees will miss out and is likely to return after the international break.
