West Brom have agreed an undisclosed fee with Dundee United for midfielder Scott Allan.
Head coach Roy Hodgson confirmed the Baggies have been in discussions with United for the 20-year-old but Albion face competition from other clubs north of the border with Rangers and Celtic interested in the Scotland Under-21 international.
Hodgson also stressed Allan was a player for the future and not for his imminent first-team plans. He said: "I know Dan Ashworth (Albion technical and sporting director) has been in talks with Dundee United and we have followed the player."
