Manchester City have reached an agreement with West Brom over a compensation fee for teenage forward Morgan Rogers, Sky Sports News understands.
Rogers turns 17 later this month and is seen as one of the hottest properties in England for his age group.
It is believed the deal will cost the Premier League champions an initial £4m, but that figure could almost double depending on Rogers' future success at the club and whether he develops into an international star.
Rogers was due to travel with Albion's first team squad for their pre-season camp in Spain this week but instead is staying in the West Midlands to complete a deal expected to be finalised by the weekend.
The player made his debut for West Brom's first team last season, coming on as a substitute in the FA Cup against Brighton in February, and has been compared to Dele Alli by some pundits.
