Clarke hoping Dorrans stays put

West Brom head coach Steve Clarke would like midfielder Graham Dorrans to remain at The Hawthorns for the rest of the season.

Dorrans indicated he would like to leave Albion this month but has started the last three games and impressed in the 2-2 draw with Aston Villa.

Clarke said: "The reason he wanted to go was that he wasn't playing matches. Now he's playing matches.

"You've seen his performances. He's always 100% committed to the club. I would love him to stay here.

"I hope he's getting enough football to make him reconsider through this transfer window and that he'll stay until the end of the season."
