Queens Park Rangers defender Darnell Furlong is set to undergo a West Brom medical today after the two clubs agreed a fee for him, Football Insider understands.
A Baggies source has told Football Insider that the 23-year-old has been granted permission to hold talks and have medical tests at the Hawthorns.
QPR have accepted a bid in the region of £1.5million for the defender, who is set to plug the club’s gap at right-back.
Furlong has come through the ranks at QPR and made 72 appearances for the club in all competitions, 61 of which have come in the Championship.
West Brom boss Slaven Bilic is determined to strengthen his squad before the start of the new Championship campaign and regards the defender as an ideal addition to his squad.
Should Furlong come through his medical he will become West Brom’s fourth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Filip Krovinovic, Kenneth Zohore and Semi Ajayi.
Furlong is the son of former QPR striker Paul Furlong, and started 23 Championship games among 29 appearances in all competitions last season.
He has previously had loan spells at Northampton Town, Cambridge United and Swindon Town.
