West Brom are edging closer to their first summer arrival, with teenage forward Owen Windsor close to agreeing terms from non-league outfit Cirencester Town.

The 17-year-old has previously been tracked by Southampton and Swindon Town, with Premier League giants Chelsea also monitoring the player during his time with Cirencester.

However, it appears as if West Brom will win the race to sign the striker and are expected to officially complete a deal in the coming days.

Windsor scored six times in seven starts for his current side in the Southern League Division One South last season and is expected to join up with the Baggies’ Under-23 side this summer.

The forward, who has represented England Schoolboys in the past, will turn 18 in September and is regarded as a promising prospect in the future.

If Windsor impresses in the Under-23 side next season, he may earn a first-team call-up, with the Baggies known for bringing through academy talent in recent years.
