Done deal: West Brom forward Oliver Burke joins Sheffield United in swap deal with Callum Robinson

Oliver Burke of Deportivo Alaves(loan) controls the ball during the Liga match between Real Betis Balompie and Deportivo Alaves at Estadio Benito Villamarin on July 16, 2020 in Seville, Spain.

Sheffield United have secured their fourth signing of the week after announcing Oliver Burke from West Bromwich Albion for an undisclosed fee.

The Scottish international has arrived on a three-year deal that sees Callum Robinson going the other way, also for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old becomes Chris Wilder's fourth signing of the week following the recent additions of Derby duo Max Lowe and Jayden Bogle and Chelsea loanee Ethan Ampadu.

Burke spent last week on international duty with Scotland - coming off the bench with 16 minutes to go in the UEFA Nations League match at home to Israel on Friday.

He was an unused sub in Monday's match against the Czech Republic.

Burke burst on to the scene with Nottingham Forest as a 17-year-old and just two years later became the most expensive Scotland player ever when he joined Bundesliga side RB Leipzig for £13million.

His time in Germany was short-lived and he made just five league starts before returning to England the following year, signing for West Brom in a £15million deal.

He spent last season on loan at Alaves in Spain's La Liga, and had also had a short stint on loan with Celtic the previous season.
