England hopefuls Jonjoe Kenny and Kyle Walker-Peters perfect solution to West Brom problem

West Brom would be the perfect location for one of these talents to continue their progress.

One area of concern for West Bromwich Albion in recent weeks has been their lack of a right-back. Darren Moore has occasionally been operating with veteran Tyrone Mears in the role, who has not exactly impressed the Baggies faithful.

It is certainly an area where West Brom need to improve in the winter. If they want to look for inspiration, then look no further than the England under-20 World Cup winning squad of last summer.

Jonjoe Kenny was the starting right-back for England at the tournament and back-up captain. The Everton man earned rave reviews for his displays. At left-back, was the predominantly right-footed Kyle Walker-Peters, who was also sensational throughout the competition.

Both are highly thought of at their respective teams, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, both are currently struggling for regular football. Kenny is behind Seamus Coleman in the pecking order whilst Mason Holgate can also play the role.

 

Walker-Peters has to try and usurp England starter Kieran Trippier and Ivory Coast star Serge Aurier at right-back, with his chances at left-back seemingly more difficult.

West Brom would be the perfect place for either to go and play their football. They would be regular starters considering the issues in the role. West Brom are a team with Premier League facilities who should be in the promotion mix come the end of the season.

Hopefully, one of these top young English talents gets a chance to play regular football at a club just like West Brom.
