Balogun last featured for Albion in their FA Cup 4th round win against West Brom on February 6.

The former Mainz defender was a key member in Nigeria’s qualification for the 2019 AFCON, after appearing at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and will look to remain fit till the tournament kicks off in Egypt in June.
