West Brom boss Carlos Corberan believes Wanderers loanee Caleb Taylor has a bright future at the Hawthorns.

Taylor joined the Whites on Deadline Day and made his debut during the 1-1 draw against Barnsley last weekend.

Corberan insists that a loan move was the best option for the towering defender and hopes he can gain valuable experience at Bolton.

“Caleb is a player I wanted to have working with me but training with one coach has a limitation," he told Express and Star.

"There is a moment where the player needs to move for new ideas and concepts for game situations.

"It doesn’t make sense to give him more minutes at under-21s level because he passed this process two years ago.

“There was a moment when our needs was more related to the middle of the pitch than at centre-back. To have Caleb training in the middle of the pitch wouldn’t have developed him in the position I see him, at centre-back."

He added: “Even though we haven’t brought in anyone (in midfield) yet, the option to move Caleb was then. We couldn’t move him today.

“Sometimes you need to take some risks thinking in the future of the club, which is our fans and our players.”

Taylor is already familiar with the challenges of League One football, having impressed during a loan spell with Cheltenham last term.

“If you ask me ‘are you happy with Caleb?’ I am very happy and I think he is going to be our future centre-back because he has all of the conditions to be an important player for West Bromwich Albion," Corberan continued.

“If you ask me if it’s right now? I don’t think right now is the moment, I think after a short-term loan will be his moment. That’s why in some moment you need to take some risks.

“I prefer five centre-backs, five midfielders, then there is no risk if something happens. But at the same time I need to think of the development of our players.”
