CREWE are poised to sign Scot­land un­der-21 in­ter­na­tional mid­fielder Brad In­man af­ter he re­jected a new con­tract at New­cas­tle United.

In­man, 21, made 22 ap­pear­ances on-loan for Crewe last sea­son.

The two clubs are in talks to agree a com­pen­sa­tion fee and the mat­ter may have to be set­tled by a tri­bunal with In­man al­ready train­ing at Crewe.

Crewe boss Steve Davis said: “We’re hav­ing more talks with New­cas­tle about Brad.

“We’re not anx­ious, but we want to try to get it sorted out as quickly as pos­si­ble be­cause he gives us some­thing dif­fer­ent.

“He is train­ing, al­though not with the main group. But he’s got quite a bit of work to do to get up to speed.

“I’m al­ways hope­ful we can sort some­thing out, but th­ese things can take time.

“It all de­pends on whether we can agree some­thing with New­cas­tle over com­pen­sa­tion.

“We don’t re­ally want it to go to a tri­bunal, so hope­fully we can agree some­thing with New­cas­tle and he can be a Crewe player in the not-tood­is­tant fu­ture.”

ON HIS WAY: Brad In­man
