Tony Pulis said: "I spoke to Rob today and I've shown him round the club and sold the club as well as I can sell it and the kid seems really keen to come here.

"His agent has been here as well talking to John Rudge, the Chairman and everyone else.

"He's the type of player we need and the type of player this football club needs and the type I've been chasing for a while.

"If I was handling the money situation I could say for definite whether he was signing.

"But I'm not and the only thing I can do is try and convince him that bringing him in, along with three or four other players, can push this club on."
