From experienced professionals to younger players looking to make their mark, the loan system is a key part of Albion's transfer strategy and player development.
Recent signings such as Abdallah Sima and Kaoru Mitoma arrived in the summer and immediately went back out on loan, while the likes of young internationals Andi Zeqiri, Moises Caicedo and Michal Karbownik are also taking the next steps on their careers.
Academy graduates such as Alex Cochrane and Teddy Jenks are up in the Scottish Premiership. Jensen Weir is in League One with Cambridge United and Ryan Longman in the Championship at Hull.
It's certainly enough to keep Albion's loans manager David Weir gainfully employed.
