Roberto Di Matteo revealed he plans to send Luke Moore out on loan after leaving him out of his 25-man Barclays Premier League squad.
Former Aston Villa striker Moore is now unable to play for the Baggies in the league until January, meaning he will have to move elsewhere if he wants first-team football.
Manager Di Matteo told his club's official website: "I spoke to Luke a couple of times. Obviously, he wasn't full of joy about it. Towards the end of (last) season, he wasn't involved as much and then I had to make a decision this season."
He added: "The fact he can't play for us until January means it would be better for him if he went out on loan and plays football, rather than just training.
"We've had some enquiries - but nothing concrete."
