West Bromwich Albion winger Oliver Burke is hoping to force his way into the club’s team.

The player is hoping his performance against Luton Town which also involved a goal would give manager Darren Moore some food for thought. NThe 21-year-old has struggled since joining West Brom last summer but he’s hoping he has turned the corner with his goal against Luton.

“I really want to show what I’m capable of, what I can do and how I can help the team,” said Burke, according to Express & Star.

“Hopefully it gives the gaffer something to think about. I want to be a regular.

“That was only my third start at West Brom so I still have a lot of learning to do before I can hit that peak of feeling really good.

“It’s going to take a few games to get into my stride, but that was a great start.

“I’m a confidence player, so when given enough opportunities I can really give strength to the team.”

Burke joined German side RB Leipzig two years ago after impressive start to life in the Championship, scoring four goals in his first five games but struggled with life in Germany.

He left the Bundesliga outfit last summer to join West Brom where he also struggled with injuries.

“Obviously the first season [at Albion] was difficult and very frustrating not getting the opportunity and then the injury,” said Burke.

“Unfortunately that’s part of football.

“But now I feel ready, I feel fit, sharper, and hopefully this season I can push on and show everyone what I’m capable of.”
