Dear native English speakers,
Would both be used?
(a) I want you to come here immediately.
(b) I want you to immediately come here.

Thanks in advance.

Both look fine to me. I'd lean more toward A personally, though. I had to think about this a bit, but I think the main reason is because it's more consistent with other time indications, which are usually at the end.

I'd choose A, but for contrast or emphasis, or to convey the importance of "immediately" to your listener, then B becomes an alternative.
