Albion have signed Marc Albrighton on loan from Leicester City for the remainder of the 2022/23 Sky Bet Championship season. 

The experienced winger played all 38 games in City’s remarkable 2015/16 Premier League title-winning campaign and added an FA Cup medal to his trophy cabinet in 2021 when the Foxes beat Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley.

Albrighton, 33, has made 295 appearances for the Foxes, representing the club in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League.

And Head Coach Carlos Corberán is delighted to have a Premier League winner in his ranks. 

“I have the highest respect for a player who has proven himself at the top level for as long as Marc,” said the Spaniard.

“To have won the Premier League and the FA Cup, and to have played so many games, is testament to a top professional who is determined to win football matches. 

“Marc will bring vast experience to the squad, but he is here to make us more competitive, and I am confident he brings the quality we will need as we look to continually improve.” 

Albrighton added: “I’ve never had an experience of fighting for promotion before and that’s something that excites me.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at Leicester and it’s a fantastic club, but I’ve gone through a spell where I’ve not been playing regular football.

“It’s not something that I’ve really been able to deal with well and I felt like I needed a fresh, new challenge. I want to come in here and show people that I can still play at a good level. It’s exciting for me.

“I have kids that want to come and watch me play on a Saturday afternoon and they haven’t been able to do that recently. I’d love to get back out there and play as much as I can for them. I also have some friends who are big Albion fans who’ll be thrilled when this news gets released.”
