The former Nottingham Forrest youngster broke the landmark fee for a Scottish player twice in the space of a year. First, his 2016 move from the City Ground to Germany cost Leipzig £13million. They then sold him on for a profit when he joined the Baggies the following summer.

Fletcher became the first Scot to fetch eight-figures when he joined the Black Cats in 2012. The deal could have reached as high as £14million had he triggered a number of sell-on clauses but he netted just 23 goals in four seasons on Wearside.
