ADIL Nabi has long been considered the brightest young talent at West Bromwich Albion.

The forward has been with the Club for over ten years and has become one of the most exciting prospects coming out of the successful Albion academy system.

He is a player with tremendous technical ability and has a superb eye for goal.

Nabi captained the Baggies to the Nike Premier Cup in April 2009 before being selected for the England Under-16 squad six months later.

He made two appearances in the 2009/10 Victory Shield against Northern Ireland and Wales.

The Birmingham-born playmaker also scored two goals in a minute for England Under-17s against Finland.

Nabi signed his first professional contract in summer 2011 and was also named Young Player of the Year at the Asian Football Awards in October 2013.

His development accelerated further, becoming a regular on the Under-18 and Under-21 scoresheets.

The 21-year-old was named on the bench for Albion’s Premier League clash with Reading on Saturday, January 12, 2013.

He signed a new two-year deal, plus a further year’s option in the Club’s favour in the following summer.

Nabi made a strong comeback following a cruciate ligament injury and continued to shine in the Under-21 side in 2014/15.

In that same season he was also named on the first-team bench on a number of occasions, including the away trip to Manchester City in March.
