West Bromwich Albion have signed Scotland international winger Oliver Burke from German club RB Leipzig for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £15m.
The 20-year-old, who came through the academy at Nottingham Forest, has put pen to paper on a five-year contract.
Burke becomes the fifth new arrival at The Hawthorns this summer after Gareth Barry, Jay Rodriguez, Zhang Yuning and Ahmed Hegazi and he will be available for West Brom’s Premier League game at home to Stoke City on Sunday.
Crystal Palace had been linked with a move for the player, after Frank de Boer confirmed his interest in the player last week.
