Academy product Jonathan Leko is a tricky winger who is currently on loan at Charlton Athletic.

Jonathan has been a member of Albion’s first-team squad since bursting onto the scene at the end of the 2015/2016 Premier League season, and moved to The Valley on a season-long loan alongside fellow Academy graduate Sam Field.
 
Having joined the Club at the age of 11, Leko made his first league start for the Baggies against West Ham United in 2016, making him the first player born in 1999 to start a Premier League game.
 
Leko was awarded Albion’s Young Player of the Season award on the final day of the 2015-16 season, before assisting Salomon Rondon with a great solo run during a 1-1 draw against Liverpool.
 
In the summer of 2016 Leko signed his first professional contract, and later that season was shortlisted for the European Golden Boy award for his performances during the calendar year.
 
The highlights of his 2016/17 campaign were an assist for Salomon Rondon's equaliser to earn a point at Stoke City and being named the PL2 Player of the Month for December.
 
Bristol City would sign Leko on loan in August 2017, and he would go on to make 11 appearances for the Robins in the Sky Bet Championship.
 
Jonathan has represented England at under-16s, under-17s and under-18s level.
