The Birmingham-born forward has put pen-to-paper on a contract that will see him a Baggie until 2024.

And the 19-year-old is delighted to have nailed down his future at the club.

“This is the next step for me now,” said Tulloch, who has been with Albion since he was nine-year-old.

“Seeing guys like Kyle (Edwards), ‘Rak’ (Rekeem Harper) and Dara (O’Shea) get their chance at first-team level is a big inspiration for me.”

Rayhaan joined the club a decade ago and has risen through the ranks at the Academy, often impressing with his ability to beat players and score goals.

Capable of playing anywhere across the front line, the youngster has represented his country at various youth levels - most notably featuring four times for England at the UEFA European Under-17 Championships in 2018.

Sporting and Technical Director Luke Dowling is delighted that the starlet has committed his future.

“Obviously everyone is focused very much on the first-team’s promotion challenge at the moment but the future of the club is always a key factor of our business,” said Dowling.

“Ray is an exciting prospect who we look forward to seeing progress now. He’s got the inspiration provided by the young players Slaven has given opportunities to.”

Tulloch came on as a substitute in all three of Albion’s FA Cup ties this campaign and also caught the eye for the Club’s Premier League 2 team, scoring nine goals and claiming four assists during 14 outings.
