That's better Albion. Young player with potential, pacy and direct, will make us a lot of money if he ever has the big boys chasing him - exactly what I've been asking for all summer. Really hope this goes through and we have an option to make it permanent.

I remember a few seasons ago when we didn't have any wingers, if this goes through we're looking well-stocked in that department, allows us to get Leko out on loan as well.

He's already a full Scotland international, has already had a full season (outstanding) in the Championship and a full season with Leipzig in the Bundesliga. He's at least 2 years ahead of Leko (nearest comparison)

He started 10 games for Forest and just 5 for RB Leipzig last season - how on earth do 15 starts in two years constitute two full seasons? We're signing potential. I've not seen much of him, looking at YouTube videos he seems be very direct but a bit chaotic in his decision making and final pass or shot. Hopefully he's a replacement for McClean who gives his maximum but lacks ability.

What i read he broke into the Forest team in December and finished the season with 21 appearences which must have seen him play nearly every game, not bad for a kid breaking into a team!!.

He's played a total of 1766 minutes of professional football which is 19.62 full matches since he made his Forest debut in 2014/15 - including just 617 minutes for the whole of last season. He has a lot to prove and the Germans clearly didn't rate him. Hopefully it all works out.

Palace forums saying that FDB wanted him to play wing back, so he'd rather play as a winger here. Shhhhh dont tell him how we set up our wingers 😆
It is a mistake to theorize before one has the facts. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.

Is that more or less than J Rod in the same period??

Any other reliable links out there as they all seem to be jumping on matt Wilson's story, not holding my breath with this one,a loan and he won't get game time like other youngsters pulis has signed,a buy anywhere between 10 & 15 million for a 20 year old prospect, can't see that too

Phillips and Burke as wingers is very exciting. It will be nice to have two pacy wingers which will worry defenders with their speed. I wonder when we will wrap this deal up? Seems close.

Hopefully we maybe seeing a change of mind from Pulis on the recruitment front there's no way 2 years ago we'd have signed an Egyptian with no premier league experience and (hopefully) splash in the region of £15 million quid on a 20 year old who has played Championship & Bundesliga football.

Hopefully we get this wrapped up, big risk but certainly the potentials there to be a top player if he puts it all together.

I don't think we are seeing a change of mind from Pulis, a change of priority maybe from survival to development and future progression

hope its a loan with an option to buy, played very little last year and is he good enough at this level? for the mentioned figure of £15m ,that's a big chunk of our budget so we need to be sure.
not seen enough of him to make judgement but plenty seem confident he's good enough.

5 year contract is risky if he doesn't come good but allows us to amortise the fee over a longer period, meaning a little bit extra in the piggy bank each year?

This is the kind of signing I've been wanting us to make all summer - sign these kind of players when they're worth £15m instead of them being out of our reach when they're worth £40m. Hope it comes off!

Oliver Burke would be a real statement of a signing, he looked a class above in the championship despite his inexperience. One of the best young players at that level in a good few years I would say. Leipzig ran Bayern close for the title for much of last season, not making it as a starter there is no great shame.

We're crying out for this kind of player. He's made for us.

An exciting signing. A gamble maybe - I have not seen enough to know if he will be a v good signing. We must be confident of his abilities.
Just hope we can get it over the line without being gazumped by Palace. One article suggesting he may also be talking to Palace whilst over here.

Although it aint done yet. Fair play to the club. Ive been synical and critical of their intentions all summer. However its a shrewd move. Fingers crossed it works out.

Why has it gone so quiet? Why no statement from the club? What is Hammond doing? Typical Albion, dithering. Etc. Etc. Etc....
