West Brom fans are really enjoying life this season as they’ve made a return to winning games on a regular basis. The Baggies have been in flying form with Darren Moore at the helm and look nailed on to make the playoffs, yet the fans aren’t completely happy as they want to see the young Rekeem Harper given a new deal at The Hawthorns.

The young central-midfielder has got bags of talent and has become a name that almost every football fan in the West Midlands will be aware of. However, at the age of just 19, and celebrating his birthday today, the Baggies want nothing more than for the club to hand out a contract offer to the youngster seeing as his current deal is set to expire in just a matter of months.
Losing out on the midfielder on a free as his deal expires would be catastrophic, especially seeing as he blatantly has a big future ahead of him and has already featured prominently under Moore this season. In all competitions this season Harper’s made 16 senior outings, as well as seven in the Premier League 2, and his recent run in the senior side has got fans desperate for him to sign a new deal.

Get that contract signed Rekeem

Happy birthday – will he still be an Albion player or will he leave come June? I think it's high time his contract situation is clarified. @Rekeemharper8, we want you to stay, hands down. Your future is with us, not on loan in Netherlands or a perennial U23 player elsewhere.

The Baggies are desperate for Harper to extend his Baggies’ stay and would love to see him sign up sooner rather than later.
