West Brom are prepared to cash in on Nathan Ferguson in the January transfer window amid interest from Tottenham and Crystal Palace, according to the Express & Star.

Ferguson’s current contract expires at the end of the season and rather run the risk of losing him for a fee potentially as low as £300,000 next summer, Albion are considering the possibility of selling the 19-year-old in the New Year.

It is understood that there is a new five-year deal on the table for Ferguson to sign and West Brom believe that the full-back’s development is better served at The Hawthorns, where he has been since the age of eight and is close to his family.

However Ferguson’s impressive form for the Baggies this season has led to him attracting interest from not only the Premier League, but also Serie A.

The Athletic reported last month that Juventus are eyeing up the versatile defender while the Sun have claimed that Spurs could offer £10million for the teenager in January.

That £10million is a lot more attractive than the measly £300,000 that a team like Juventus would have to pay for Ferguson is he did run down his contract and leave next summer.

It would make sense of West Brom to cash in on the youngster in January.

Albion fans don’t like to see the club’s academy graduates leave The Hawthorns but after what happened in the summer with Louie Barry leaving for next to nothing, many would take that potential £10million for Ferguson.

In other West Brom news, Albion want to sign this English loanee on a permanent basis in January.
