Saul Shotton will pen his two-year deal with West Bromwich Albion later on Wednesday, TEAMtalk understands.
The former Bury trainee, 18, was the subject of a number of bids during his time at Gigg Lane, but once he became a free agent a host of clubs made contact.
Watford and Leeds came close to signing him, whist Manchester United also made a late move.
However, Shotton agreed terms last week and played in Under-23 game this week, with Slavan Bilic’s unbeaten Albion poised to unveil the signing of the free agent on Wednesday.
Bury’s 125-year membership of the Football League was ended on 28 August after owner Steve Dale’s summer-long attempt to sell the League One club failed.
