West Bromwich Albion have signed Scotland international Oliver Burke from Germany’s RB Leipzig, the Premier League club said on Friday.

The 20-year-old winger joins Tony Pulis’s squad on a five-year deal after featuring 25 times in the league last season for Leipzig, who finished runners-up to Bayern Munich.

Burke became the most expensive Scottish player in signing for the German side from Nottingham Forest for a reported 13 million pounds ($16.66 million) in August last year.

Local media said on Friday West Brom had shelled out around 15 million pounds to bring him back to England.

“I feel like it is a time for me to move on and play more games,” Burke said in a statement. “I’m here, I want to impress and I want my name to be first on the team sheet.”
