On this day in 2008...

Albion smashed their existing transfer record with the purchase of Iglesias Borja Valero from Real Mallorca in Spain.

The midfield playmaker made the move to England for a reported figure of £4.7million after having featured for his club side in a friendly at The Hawthorns a fortnight earlier. 

He was immediately thrown into the first team just four days later, in a League Cup tie at Hartlepool United… The very definition of culture shock!
