West Brom’s attacking options received a boost with the signing of one of Wales’ Euro 2016 heroes, Hal Robson-Kanu.
The 27-year-old was a free agent after leaving Reading at the end of last season and despite some impressive performances in France this summer he remained without a club up until the final day of the window.
As he was unattached it would not have mattered had West Brom not been able to get the deal done on deadline day, but having taken his time Robson-Kanu was happy to commit to a two-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.
“It was an important decision for me and my family and we took our time but it’s a fantastic club and manager and I’m really happy to be here,” said the striker who scored one of the goals of Euro 2016 in the quarter-final defeat of Belgium.
“I’m particularly pleased to be back in the Premier League. I am grateful for everything that Reading have done for me and I enjoyed my time there but it’s great to take this step.”
