West Brom have signed Scotland international winger Oliver Burke from RB Leipzig for a fee of £15 million.

The 20-year-old joins West Brom on a five-year contract and will be available to play in their clash against Stoke on Sunday. Burke is a former Nottingham Forest player and moved to Leipzig in an eye-catching transfer in the summer of 2016.

Burke made 25 appearances for Leipzig last season but only five of them came from the start as he struggled to establish himself in a side that finished second in the Bundesliga in 2016-17 to qualify for the Champions League. He becomes West Brom's fifth senior arrival of the summer transfer window after Jay Rodriguez, Ahmed Hegazi, Gareth Barry and Yuning Zhang.
