West Bromwich Albion loan watch: Alex Palmer draws, Sam Field comes off the bench and Oliver Burke endures a loss

In our Loan Watch feature series, the Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at how a selection of players from a particular club are faring whilst they are away from their parent side and provide a brief update regarding their form.

Oliver Burke

Oliver Burke played the full 90 minutes for Alaves as they went down 2-1 away to Valencia in La Liga (per WhoScored).

Goals from Maxi Gomez and Dani Parejo consigned Alaves to their third consecutive league defeat with the club sitting just outside the relegation zone.

Burke’s appearance in the loss was his fourth for the Spanish side, with the Scottish attacker yet to score a goal for his club.

However, the six-cap Scotland international also started the 2-0 win over Mallorca just six days prior, getting an assist in the game (via Transfermarkt).

Sam Field

Sam Field came off the bench in the 89th minute as Charlton Athletic drew 2-2 at away to Fulham (per WhoScored).

The substitute appearance came just days after Field started and completed the full 90 minutes in the Addicks’ 2-1 loss at home to Swansea City.

The draw leaves Charlton with just a single win from their last five league games and leaves them 10th place in the table (via BBC).

Alex Palmer

Alex Palmer continued his strong season with Plymouth Argyle as he made it 12 starts in a row in the 2-2 draw at home to Scunthorpe United.

The two goals conceded means it’s just one clean sheet in Palmer’s last seven league games for Plymouth.

Following the draw, the side languishes in 12th place in the League Two table, and have just one win in their last five games in the league (per Sky Sports).

Burke seems to be finding his feet at Alaves, however, it will take time before the player can make a meaningful impact in Spain, as he has made just the four appearances to date.

Meanwhile, Field has enjoyed a season of two halves with Charlton, initially starting three of his first four games. Since then, he has started just one of his last four games (via Transfermarkt) and will want regular appearances if he harbours serious ambitions of breaking through at the Hawthorns in the future.

On a personal note, Palmer has enjoyed the best loan spell of the trio and will be hoping to remain the first choice ‘keeper in the future for Plymouth in league competition.
