Montero arrives at The Hawthorns

Jefferson Montero has today joined Albion on loan from Swansea City for the remainder of the season, subject to international clearance.

The 29-year-old winger has made 12 appearances for the Jacks this term, impressing from the bench on Tuesday in a hard-fought 3-3 draw with Birmingham City. 

He is eligible to play in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Middlesbrough at The Hawthorns.

Montero has 64 international caps and 10 goals for Ecuador with whom he played at the 2014 World Cup. 

He has not played in the Emirates FA Cup for Swansea this season and is available to play in Wednesday’s fourth-round replay against Brighton at The Hawthorns.

Head Coach Darren Moore welcomed Jefferson to the Club, saying: “Jeff will bring an ability to isolate opponents in one-v-one attacking positions and is one of the few wide players I’ve seen who will still go past people. He will give us options and add dimensions for us.”
