Scotland international Oliver Burke has been handed a big Premier League chance, signing a permanent deal with Sheffield United.

The former Nottingham Forest man switches West Brom for Bramall Lane as part of a swap deal that sees Callum Robinson return to the Hawthorns.

Burke first broke onto the scene at Nottingham Forest, form with the Championship club earning him a move to rising Bundesliga power RB Leipzig.

It didn’t work out for him in Germany and things haven’t quite clicked into gear for him since, spending time out on loan at Alaves and Celtic after joining West Brom permanently during the 2016/17 season.

 

Chris Wilder sees a player in him though and has moved to make Burke a Premier League player. He joins fellow Scotland internationals John Fleck and Oli McBurnie at Sheffield United.

Despite inconsistent form over the last few seasons, Burke has still managed to earn 12 Scotland caps, scoring once against Cyprus in June 2019.
