Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are both reportedly monitoring West Bromwich Albion right winger Oliver Burke.

According to a report in The Sun on Sunday newspaper (page 61), both clubs have sent scouts to watch the player most recently in the Baggies Checkatrade trophy victory against Blackpool.

West Brom spend a club record £15million last summer to bring Burke to The Hawthorns from German outfit RB Leipzig, but has failed to impress on a regular basis since returning to England

The Scottish international came to prominence at Nottingham Forest where his raw potential earned him the switch to the Bundesliga, scoring one goal in 25 appearances in all competitions.

Burke, 21 has made just one substitute appearance in the Championship this season and they could be set to accept a lower price than they paid for him to depart in the winter transfer window.
