Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor is ready to sign for West Bromwich Albion, according to The Express & Star.

Taylor is out of contract at Leeds in the summer, and although the West Yorkshire outfit have offered the left-back a new two-year contract, they do not expect him to sign the deal, according to the report.

It has been reported that West Brom are in talks with the Whites over compensation, but the Baggies will pull out if the transfer fee has to be settled by a tribunal.

Earlier this month, as reported by The Birmingham Mail, West Brom manager Tony Pulis confirmed his interest in Taylor.

The 23-year-old is one of the left-backs in the Championship, and the former England Under-19 international would be a good signing for the Baggies.

Taylor could take a while to get used to the pace and the intricacies of the Premier League, but there is no doubt that in the long run the left-back would prove to be a brilliant signing for West Brom.
