The Lions have poached Nigerian midfielder Tim Iroegbunam as well as Finley Thorndike and Finn Azaz from the Baggies academy in the last five months.
Joshua earned a lot of praise after starring in West Brom's 4-1 rout of Premier League 2 table toppers Arsenal in the Premier League Cup on Thursday, scoring with a header following a set-piece ten minutes into the second half.
Joshua had a solid performance against the Gunners, making four interceptions, four blocks, completed nineteen out of nineteen short passes and two out of three long passes.
The 6ft 6in defender was dominant in aerial duels, winning five out of five headers he contested, one of which was a goal.
Communication with his teammates was good majority of the game however he did get mixed up with the other center-back who was meant to pick up the Arsenal striker on one occasion.
