Pilkington, 23, will sign a three-year deal after successfully completing a medical and subject to the relevant paperwork being completed.

He told the club's official website the transfer had been on the cards for some time and he was looking forward to testing himself in the Premier League.

"I think it's been in the pipeline for about a week or so now and I'm absolutely delighted to make the move having passed my medical," he said.

"It's great to get down here, I met all the lads today and met the gaffer so, yes, I'm absolutely delighted. The Premier League is the best league in the world. When you're a boy you dream of playing in it one day."
