Exeter City have signed West Bromwich Albion's right-back Kane Wilson on loan until January, subject to Premier League approval.

Wilson, who has represented England at under-16 and under-17 level, is currently away on duty for his country and will link up with the Exeter City squad next week.

The 17-year-old comes to St James Park with a growing reputation having made his debut for West Brom in the EFL Cup last season and also played two games for the club in EFL Trophy last campaign.

City’s assistant manager Matt Oakley, who has been working with West Brom on the transfer, said: “Kane was on the bench for West Bromwich Albion against Stoke on Sunday so to have him with us shows the respect, faith and trust Tony Pulis has with allowing him to be part of our squad.”

Speaking about the player himself, West Brom head coach Tony Pulis added: “He’s a good athlete, he has great touch and great composure. I really do think he has a bright future.”
