West Bromwich Albion will look to receive a compensation package of at least £4m if and when Nathan Ferguson leaves the club.
The youngster has been in consistent form for the Championship league leaders this term and has gained interest from a number of clubs in the process, mainly from the Premier League.
The 19-year-old was subject to a deadline move to Crystal Palace last month, but a knee issue was discovered by the London based side during the defender’s medical and Ferguson returned to the Hawthorns.
Having entered into the final six months of his current contract with the Baggies, Ferguson has held off any renewal talks, remaining set on leaving the club in June.
Palace are expected to return for him in the summer, whilst Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur are also interested.
With Ferguson’s contract set to expire in the summer, West Brom will actively look for a compensation package, which is claimed to be set at around £4m. Should the Baggies not receive a compensation fee, the club would be forced to go to a tribunal.
The young defender who has made 21 appearances for West Brom this term is currently recovering from a knee issue and is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

Nathan Ferguson’s time at West Brom seems to be over even though he didn’t secure a January move away.
The defender seems to have his heart set on leaving this summer, and that is a bitter pill for Baggies officials to swallow.
Having failed as of yet to agree fresh terms, the club may attempt one last try at keeping the full-back – but the lure of a potential move to Palace or Spurs would be tempting for anyone and a summer exit seems inevitable.
