The Baggies had a bid for the young marksman rejected in the summer and are contemplating a second offer in January's transfer window.
But Railwaymen boss Dario Gradi has hinted the struggling Premiership outfit are not the right club for Hulse to continue learning his craft.
Gradi insists he would not prevent the 19-goal striker leaving Gresty Road, providing a suitable club came in for his services but believes it will be more beneficial for Hulse to stay in the Second Division this season.
"West Brom made a bid in the summer which was turned down," said Gradi.
"There is a lot of interest for Rob but as yet we have not had a firm offer from the right sort of club.
"We are not a club to stand in anyone's way which is why the players trust our judgement.
"Rob has done well but I believe he needs to see out the season with us to help his game develop."
