Nixon said the West Midlands club could propose a loan move for the Englishman with an obligation to buy if they are promoted to the Premier League next season.

The Northern Echo is also reporting that West Brom have held ‘advanced talks’ with the 24-year-old’s representatives.

Fellow Championship side Middlesbrough are also reportedly keen on Choudhury.

Personal terms agreed for striker

Elsewhere, Aston Villa are set to secure the signing of Scottish prospect Rory Wilson after personal terms were agreed, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The 16-year-old confirmed he was leaving Rangers last month, after scoring an impressive 49 goals at youth level this season.

Steven Gerrard was familiar with the young striker from his time in Scotland and Aston Villa quickly emerged as favourites to snap him up.

The Midlands club have batted off competition from a number of English sides and will have to pay only a £300,000 development fee for his signature, with Romano reporting the move will be made official in July 1.
