Dundee United defender Harry Souttar is on the verge of a move to Stoke City after the two clubs agreed a fee for the 17-year-old.
The fee is understood to be £200,000 plus add-ons, including a sell-on clause and the player is believed to have agreed personal terms.
Souttar has played just three times for Dundee United’s first team – scoring once – and is a product of the Tannadice club’s youth academy.
And it’s understood Souttar himself is keen to go and has made that clear to the Tangerines.
Three years ago his older brother, John, turned down a move to Sunderland after United had accepted a £600,000 bid.
He later regretted that decision and by the time he went to Hearts in January was desperate to move on.
Now the younger sibling is keen to kick-start a career in England as soon as possible.
His manager is already on record as saying that, while he would like to hang on to Souttar, if a big offer that led to him being able to add more experienced defenders to his squad came in, it could be accepted.
