Steve Clarke: West Brom boss not planning to loan out any senior players

The likes of Graham Dorrans, Zoltan Gera, Markus Rosenberg, Goran Popov, Diego Lugano and Steven Reid were all omitted from the match-day squad for last weekend's draw at Stoke.

Despite a number of his senior players being left out, Clarke is not thinking of letting them leave and wants them to push for a return to the first-team fold.

"They are all Premier League players, who will want to play at this level," he said.

"They will want to play here for the Albion - they show me that every day and I don't expect anyone else to want to go out on loan."
