The 18-year-old who has come through the Baggies academy has made 10 appearances so far in the Championship and has caught the attention of a lot of top Premier League clubs.

West Brom are said to be desperate to hang on to the youngster by getting him to sign a new deal.

Here’s all you need to know about the teenager.

Full Name: Rekeem Harper

Age: 18

Club: West Bromwich Albion

Nationality: England

Position: Central midfield

Playing Style: Harper is an all-round box to box midfielder. While he is extremely strong for his age, he also has the ability to run with the ball and pick out passes. He can also take on players and beat them and is not scared of receiving the ball in tight situations.

Strengths: Running with the ball, turning defence into attack

Weaknesses: Inexperienced

Highlights of His Career: This has been Harper’s breakthrough season as West Brom manager Darren Moore has recently decided to start him in a midfield three alongside Chris Brunt and Gareth Barry. The all-action displays that the midfielder has put in have attracted the attention of many suitors from the top flight.

Rumour Rating: A-

With Harper’s contract with West Brom running out at the end of the season, there should be no reason why Spurs can’t get their man if they wanted to. Tottenham would be a good club for Harper as he would be aware of Pochettino’s willingness to trust young players. However, signing another 18-year-old midfielder doesn’t make a lot of sense given that both Oliver Skip and Luke Amos are highly rated at the club.
