West Brom expect to complete the signing of Bobby Reid from Bristol City later this week.

The Mirror claim that a fee has been agreed between both clubs and the transfer is now a case of when rather than if.

Reid, who impressed in the Championship last season, is expected to become Darren Moore’s first major signing since being given the West Brom job.

A deal is thought to be worth around £7 million with the Baggies preparing for life in the second division.

Bristol City have been forced into selling the player this summer or they faced the prospect of losing him for nothing.

The report claims that with just one year remaining on his current City deal, Reid was not planning on renewing his contract.

Romaine Sawyers is also likely to follow Reid through the door at the Hawthorns following talks with Brentford.

Reid has attracted Premier League interest of late, but he’ll be hoping to mount a promotion push with the Baggies.
