West Bromwich Albion have signed Brighton midfielder Jayson Molumby on a season-long loan, with a view to a permanent deal.
The 22-year-old arrives at The Hawthorns with Sky Bet Championship experience, and nine Republic of Ireland caps, to his name.
Albion’s sixth signing of the summer transfer window made more than 50 appearances in the Championship during loan spells with Millwall and Preston North End in the last two campaigns.
And Albion boss Valérien Ismaël is “delighted” to have recruited Molumby, who he says has the “perfect profile” to play for his side.
The gaffer said: “Jayson is the perfect example of a player who has the right mentality and suits our philosophy. He is the right player for us and we are delighted to have him.
“His skills out of possession are incredible and he gives us more volume and more possibilities in midfield, which will support us with our intensity and this is one of his strengths.
“Jayson is young but he already has a lot of experience in the Championship and with Ireland. He has the perfect profile – our new profile – to be a West Brom player and I’m delighted to have him.”
