SCOTTISH international Oliver Burke joined Albion on a five-year-deal from Red Bull Leipzig in August for an undisclosed fee.

The exciting winger came through the academy at Nottingham Forest and signed his first professional deal for the Club in 2014, going on to break into the first team over the following couple of seasons.

After a great start to the 2016/17 campaign for Forest, where he scored four goals in seven appearances, he caught the attention of the top Premier League and European teams and subsequently signed for RB BLeipzig.

The most expensive Scottish player ever became the first of his countrymen to score in the Bundesliga this century in just his third game for the Club, and made over 20 appearances as Leipzig came second in Germany’s top flight.

Oli played 16 times in his first season at Albion, notably assisting goals in games away to Brighton and at home against Manchester United.

He spent the second half of the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Celtic as they won a domestic treble, and will be hoping to make his mark in Spain this year during a spell at La Liga side Alaves.
