The 23-year-old Italian surprisingly returned from a loan spell at Fiorentina in his homeland earlier this month and has since made three substitute appearances.
But boss Nuno Espirito Santo admits his living arrangements amid the difficulties brought on by Covid-19 are not ideal, and the club are aiming to sort those out quickly as the former AC Milan centre forward aims to reignite his career.
“In the case of Patrick, I can be clear. What we did was to bring him first,” said Nuno.
“We brought him as soon as we could, but there’s an issue with his family (coming over to England), especially with his partner.
“There are restrictions and now we need clearance from public health, and also some kind of authorisation to be in the country.
“It’s been hard. He’s in the hotel now. As a club, we don’t want our players to be in the hotel.
“We want our players in their own homes with the comfort of their families, like we try to do with everybody.
“There are young players here with their dad, mum, sister, whoever.
“It’s so important. With Patrick, now we are accelerating the process to bring his family, join him.”
Cutrone came on towards the end of the Black Country derby loss to Albion and missed a good chance to score.
He may get his first start since returning at Chorley in the FA Cup on Friday.
On Cutrone’s displays, Nuno added: “We are giving some time to Patrick. He’s working very hard in the training sessions. We believe at the right moments, this decision will be proven to be right.”
