Feature

Hal Robson-Kanu Q&A

23 May 2017

The Welsh international, signed as a free transfer in the last hours of the summer transfer window in August 2016, spent the bulk of the campaign as Salomon Rondon's back-up and an impact substitute.

But his profile with Baggies fans got a major up-grade when Robson-Kanu, given a start at Southampton on New Year's Eve, smashed home a glorious winner in a 2-1 victory.

Robson-Kanu also memorably scored against Arsenal in a 3-1 victory at The Hawthorns to confirm the effectiveness of his other contribution to the campaign as he frequently came off the bench to make significant impacts.

Robson-Kanu joins Albion

31 August 2016

This all followed his landmark appearances for Wales in their historic run to the 2016 Euro finals in which his goal against Belgium featured in FIFA's final listings for the goal of the year.

Robson-Kanu went to those finals as a free agent having declined offers to extend his stay at Reading for whom he made nearly 200 appearances after starting his career at Arsenal.

He rejected offers from home and abroad before opting to join the Baggies on a two-year deal with a further one-year option.
