Tony Pulis wants to add to his defensive unit this summer and has already eyed up on potential signing.

The Baggies are one of a number of clubs that are said to be interested in highly-rated Lincoln City centre-back Sean Raggett.

According to the Express, West Ham are in pole position to land the 23-year-old defender who caught the eye for the Imps this season as they secured promotion back to the Football League and reached the FA Cup quarter-final.

West Ham have already seen a £125,000 offer turned down by the League Two outfit for their star defender while League One outfits Peterborough and Oxford United have had bids in the region of £250,000 rejected, and you can find the best League One betting odds here with OddsDigger.

Raggett has a release clause in his contract which stands at £350,000 which would need to be met in full before Lincoln would allow him to leave the club this summer.

Both Norwich and West Brom are also strongly considering bids for the defender who is seen as a signing for the future.
