Oliver Burke close to West Brom move from RB Leipzig
Last Updated: 24/08/17 6:59pm
RB Leipzig winger Oliver Burke is set for a medical at West Brom ahead of a potential move to the Premier League side, according to Sky sources.
The 20-year-old Scottish winger left Nottingham Forest for Germany in a £13m deal last summer but slipped down the pecking order at Leipzig after impressing initially and made just five league starts.
He is now on the verge of a move to West Brom and we understand the deal could cost the Baggies up to £15m if they sign Burke on a permanent basis.
However, a loan deal is also a possibility.
Meanwhile, we understand Albion's interest in Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer has cooled, with Baggies boss Tony Pulis apparently keen to divert his funds elsewhere.
West Brom have made a great start to the season and have maximum points from two Premier League games, following wins over Bournemouth and Burnley.
