The Romanian international heads to the Netherlands on a deal that runs until 30th June, and will link up with Alan Pardew’s team for the remainder of the campaign.

“He will have a chance to play regularly at a very high standard in the Dutch Eredivisie, and work under a very experienced coach in Alan Pardew.

“Myself, Graham Potter, David Weir, and his team will continue to monitor his progress, and we wish him all the very best for the rest of the season.”

Baluta arrived at Albion from FC Viitorul Constanta in January 2019, before returning to the club on loan.

He returned to Albion ahead of the current campaign, and made his one first-team appearance to date in the Carabao Cup third round tie against Aston Villa in September.

The 20-year-old has also played five times in the Premier League 2 for Simon Rusk’s under-23 side, and in three Trophy matches against Southend United, Leyton Orient and Newport County.
