According to Sky Sports, RB Leipzig winger Oliver Burke is heading to England for a medical with West Bromwich Albion - though it's still unclear whether he will join on loan or permanently.

The Baggies have brought in Ahmed Hegazi, Gareth Barry and Jay Rodriguez to boost their squad this summer, and Tony Pulis has seen his side get off to a perfect start to the new Premier League campaign with 1-0 wins over Bournemouth and Burnley.

Despite the strong start to the season, West Brom are still in the market for new signings, and will hope to have some new faces in through the door before next Thursday's transfer deadline.

Now, according to Sky Sports, West Brom are poised to wrap up a deal for RB Leipzig winger Oliver Burke, though it's still unclear just whether the deal will be a loan move or a permanent one.

It's noted that Burke is heading to The Hawthorns for a medical this evening, in a deal that would either see Burke join on a season-long loan deal or pen a permanent deal for £15million.

Burke, 20, came up through the ranks with Nottingham Forest before hitting six goals in 31 games for the Championship club, and his form at the City Ground earned him a big move to RB Leipzig.

The Scotland international was expected to make an impact in Germany, but he started just five Bundesliga games, notching just one goal and two assists in a frustrating campaign with the Bundesliga side.

Despite his potential, Leipzig now appear to be on the verge of letting Burke return to English football, with West Brom poised to snap him up ahead of next week's transfer deadline.

With great pace, power and dribbling ability, Burke could provide a spark to the West Brom side, and his imminent signing represents a major coup for the Baggies.
