Sam French has been involved in Albion's PL2 setup since joining the club towards the end of 2020.

The stopper began his career in the youth ranks of Leicester City, before joining Derby County's development system in 2017. French was regularly involved between the sticks and helped the Rams win the U18 Premier League during his time in the East Midlands.

Sam featured for Hyde United and Sky Bet League Two outfit Stevenage on short loan spells before relocating to the West Midlands with the Baggies in 2020.

The 19-year-old has started a handful of games for the Under-23s in the EFL Trophy and Premier League 2 Division 2 over the 2020/21 campaign. Sam saved a penalty during a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in November, 2020 and gave a solid showing against several Premier League players who were involved for Leeds during a PL2 clash towards the end of 2020.
