West Brom are playing hardball despite their apparent desperation to keep rising star Rayhaan Tulloch.
The England youth international’s deal at The Hawthorns is up in the summer and sources close to the player are stunned by suggestions coming out of the club that he is demanding around £10-15,000-a-week.
