Crystal Palace are set to sign West Bromwich Albion defender Nathan Ferguson.
The 19-year-old is due to be out of contract in the summer.
It means the Baggies face losing the teenager for compensation if he did not extend his terms.
Ferguson was due to undergo his medical earlier this week as Palace closed on a deal which could be worth £10million.
He is comfortable playing in either full-back slot although he is right-footed.
