West Brom fans react as Rekeem Harper wins the club’s Player of the Month award

West Brom fans have taken to Twitter to react after Rekeem Harper won their Player of the Month award, having enjoyed an excellent January in which he put in a string of impressive performances as revealed on the club’s official Twitter account.

The 18-year-old played all but three minutes of the Baggies’ fixtures throughout January as he starts to cement his place in Darren Moore’s starting XI, having originally made his first-team debut in the 1-0 over Bournemouth last season – in doing so, he became the second player born this century to play in the Premier League.

Harper has excelled in the centre of midfield for the Midlands-based side in his 10 appearances across all competitions so far this season, showcasing a maturity beyond his teenage years.
