Sessegnon excited after frantic day

Attacking midfielder seals Albion deal and jets off for international duty

STEPHANE Sessegnon last night drew to a close a frantic transfer deadline day for him by becoming Albion’s record transfer – and insisted: “I’m excited to start now.”

The attacking midfielder flew over from Paris earlier in the morning and finally put pen to paper on a three-year contract just before the window shut at 11pm.

And he had little time to digest his move to The Hawthorns before racing out of the door to catch a flight en route to link up with Benin for their World Cup qualifier against Rwanda, in Porto Novo, on Sunday.

“It’s been a long day but I am just happy to sign for West Brom,” said Sessegnon.

“West Brom play very good football and have good players so for me it’s a great choice.

“The gaffer said to me he wanted me because he wants to play more football, add more movement and create chances.

“I’m happy to sign for West Brom and I’m excited to start now.”
