West Brom could lose highly-rated teenager Rekeem Harper to Celtic this summer for just £235,000, according to the Express and Star.

The report states that the six-figure fee would cover the cost of a compensation package for the midfielder, who is also being monitored by Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City.

Harper has been offered a second deal by the Baggies, with West Brom reportedly unwilling to up the offer for the 19-year-old any more.

If Harper decides to reject the deal from his current club, Celtic could sign the player for just £235,000 this summer.

However, if Harper decides to remain in England the Baggies could earn a larger fee, which would be determined by the Professional Football Compensation Committee.

Previous cases have seen Chelsea pay Manchester City £6.5m for Daniel Sturridge and Liverpool hand Burnley £8m for Danny Ings.

However, the Scottish giants are the front runners to secure the player’s services over the summer, with Harper present at Celtic Park last Sunday to watch Neil Lennon’s side lift the Scottish Premiership title.
