It has also been stated that Harper was in attendance at Celtic Park this past Sunday as the Ladbrokes Premiership champions closed their season with a 2-1 win over Hearts.

Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in signing the England youth international, who is out of contract next month.

West Brom have tried to get the player tied down to a new deal but has thus far been unsuccessful in their attempts.

Harper has played 23 times for the Baggies this season and previously had a spell on loan at Blackburn Rovers.
