West Brom weighs offers from Lincoln and Portsmouth for their promising England Under-21 goalkeeper Josh Griffiths.

Griffiths showed his potential when he was loaned out to Cheltenham last season by keeping 23 clean sheets in 50 games to help them win League Two.

The 19-year-old displays also earned him Cheltenham’s Young Player of the Year award, along with a first call-up to the England Under-21 squad for their Euros group stage campaign in March.

West Brom are now plotting the next stage of development for their third tier goalkeeping perspective.

Lincoln’s interest comes after they borrowed another Baggies stopper and England youth international, Alex Palmer, last season.

Palmer helped them reach the League One play-off final where they were picked for promotion by Blackpool.

There is another West Brom connection to Lincoln, managed by former Hawthorns midfielder and coach Michael Appleton.

But Lincoln also faces competition from their former manager Danny Cowley, who is now the head coach of Portsmouth.
