Albion have signed midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah from Fulham on an 18-month contract until the summer of 2024.
The 28-year-old midfielder, who earned an England cap in 2018, has Premier League and Championship experience from permanent spells with Chelsea, Watford and the Cottagers, in addition to a number of second-tier loans.
Head Coach Carlos Corberán is delighted to recruit a player who he says will add “quality” and “competition for places” to his first-team squad.
Carlos said: “Chalobah is an athletic, hardworking midfielder who has the quality required to make a real impact in the Championship. To do that he will need to consistently play to a high standard and take his opportunity when it arises.
“I believe strongly that competition for places must be intense and recruiting Chalobah to the squad will bring out the best in everyone competing for a position in the team.
“We will work with him closely to ensure he is ready to fight for every point between now and the end of the season.”
Chalobah added: “I’m really happy to be here.
“I heard about the club’s interest in me a little while ago so I’m glad to finally get the deal done.
“Ever since I heard about the interest in me I obviously started following the club’s results a lot more. I’ve been watching plenty of the games recently and from what I’ve seen, it’s been pretty good.
“I definitely see so much potential in this team. I see that there’s a talented group of players here and I just want to play a part in everything.”
