West Brom midfielder James McClean will face "internal disciplinary proceedings" after he refused to attend the club's four-day training camp in Scotland.

McClean has been linked with a move away from the Hawthorns to join up with Sky Bet Championship rivals Stoke City.

Stoke remain in talks with the Baggies over a deal for the Republic of Ireland international, although the clubs are still wide apart in their valuations.

Stoke are understood to be prepared to pay £4m, while West Brom want at least £6m for the winger.

McClean follows the stance adopted by Ben Foster and Craig Dawson earlier in the summer as both refused to go on a pre-season training camp to Portugal.

Foster got a move to Watford, Dawson however has been given permission to miss this trip as he's just become a father.

McClean has spent three years at The Hawthorns, making 112 appearances for West Brom since joining the club from Wigan.
