Graham Dorrans: West Brom has not been involved in recent games

The Scottish international has been left out of West Brom's last two squads and has not played since September when he featured in the League Cup clash with Arsenal.

Dorrans has been pushed down the pecking order to such an extent that he has not made the bench, and Clarke admits the player wants to be playing.

"Graham knows the situation," Clarke is quoted in the Birmingham Mail. "He knows where he is and he works well in training every day.

"He actually asked to play in the last Under-21 game (against Liverpool). He came to me and said 'gaffer, I need a game'.

"That tells you he is in a positive frame of mind and wants to keep himself in good shape.

"At the moment there are no big issues."

Sky Sports understands that Dorrans is hoping to conclude a loan move away from the club - although Clarke is seemingly looking to keep hold of him and other fringe players.

"I'm not sure how many games we've got between now and the transfer window opening but those players who are on the sidelines now will possibly be back in the team by then and we will be talking about a different set of players."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
