West Brom manager Tony Mowbray will decide in the summer whether to try to sign Argentinian midfielder Juan Carlos Menseguez on a permanent basis.
Albion signed Menseguez on loan from San Lorenzo during the January transfer window. He has yet to start a game for the Baggies but came off the bench to score during Saturday's 3-0 win over Sunderland at The Hawthorns and Mowbray wants to view Menseguez's performances in the final four games of the season before making a decision on his future.
"Myself and the club haven't had that conversation with Juan's advisors or him yet," the manager said.
"The perception is that he's a very big player in the Argentinian league and it will probably come down to the individual and the club. He's their player.
"When you deal with South American clubs it's usually via the agents that you have to make the breakthrough or contact.
"He's a talented individual, a nice lad, and we will try and give him more game time to see what he can do."
Mowbray has been impressed by the way 25-year-old Menseguez has adapted to life at the club despite his limited appearances.
But he accepts the player may want to return home after few opportunities to display his talent.
He said: "Juan has grown on us all really. He has taken time to adapt and he's not a huge physical presence who comes steaming onto the training ground and makes you go 'Wow'."
