Skysports.com understands Bristol Rovers are lining up a loan swoop for West Brom forward Chris Wood.
Rovers boss Paul Trollope is keen to bolster his attacking options and he has targeted a move for highly-rated Wood.
Wood has come through the ranks at West Brom and is highly-regarded at the Hawthorns.
The 18-year-old has found first-team opportunities hard to come by in recent months and the recent arrival of Frank Nouble has pushed him further down the pecking order in Roberto Di Matteo's plans.
The move is expected to go through next week with West Brom keen to have Wood available for this weekend's FA Cup tie with Reading with Nouble cup-tied having already played for West Ham in the competition this season.
Wood is keen on a move in search of regular first-team football as he looks to keep his place in the New Zealand squad ahead of this summer's World Cup finals.
"We're hoping to tie a new signing up on Sunday. The club we are getting him from has asked to use him in the FA Cup to cover themselves," Trollope told his club's official website of his transfer plans.
"We are aware of the need for reinforcements and we are aware of the need to get players back from injury as quickly as we can so we can get on with the rest of the season."
