After sitting out the last two Skybet Championship games with injury, Nigerian born defender Tosin Adarabioyo is working his way back to fitness with West Bromwich Albion.
The 21-year-old has not been in action for his club in recent weeks due to a minor injury and has been in rehabilitation.
The Baggies currently sit in fourth spot in the Championship table, seven points adrift of the automatic promotion places, and they will be looking for a really strong finish to the season, in an attempt to crack the top two.
Adarabioyo is a key member of the Baggies squad this season, so having him back and available for selection in time for Friday’s clash with Birmingham will be a huge boost for the Black Country outfit.
West Brom need to string together a run of victories, if they are to have any chance whatsoever of finishing inside the top two come May, and having Adarabioyo back will stand them in great stead as they head into the final two months of the season.
Adarabioyo joined Championship club West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan deal from Premier League outfit Manchester City in the summer of 2018.
The former England Under-19 international defender has made a huge impact at The Hawthorns so far.
Adarabioyo’s performances at the back has been great. The defender earns £30,000 per week as salary.
He has made eight appearances for City’s first team to date since he made his senior debut against Chelsea in the FA Cup back in February 2016.
Born to a Nigerian father and an English mother, the centre back is highly regarded by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola as an integral part of the future of the team.
He is reportedly keen on representing England ahead of Nigeria where his father hail from.
