Darren Moore is delighted that West Brom have permitted attacker Rayhaan Tulloch to join up with his Doncaster Rovers side for the season.
Ex- Albion boss Moore, now in charge of League One Rovers, has borrowed youngster Tulloch – a player he knows particularly well – for the campaign and gave him a debut on Saturday in the 1-1 draw with MK Dons at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Tulloch, 19, was given his Albion debut by Moore in the FA Cup tie with Brighton in January 2019 and, having committed his long-term future to The Hawthorns this summer, has been allowed to reunite with his old youth-team boss in Yorkshire ahead of a promotion push.
Tulloch played 75 minutes on Saturday before being withdrawn. Moore believes a season in League One will ensure that he returns to Albion next summer a better player.
“He’s one that I’ve known for many years and it’s good to see him now,” Moore told the Doncaster Free Press. “I was probably working with him when he was with the U12s or U14s and now he’s on the front line.
“We knew then he was going to be a top, top player. You’ve seen a small cameo of what he can do. I’ve just got to add things to his game now, where he’ll be more effective going forward.
“I’m really pleased and grateful for West Brom allowing us to have the opportunity to have him here with us.
“Our job is to give him first team football and whenever the time comes to hand him back, he’ll be a better player no doubt.”
