Lon­don: West Brom have signed Bel­gium mid­fielder Nacer Chadli from Pre­mier League ri­vals Tot­ten­ham on a four-year deal for a fee reported to be £13m.

The 27-year-old joined Spurs from Dutch side FC Twente for £7m in July 2013. He made 119 ap­pear­ances for Spurs, scor­ing 25 goals, but has not fea­tured for Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino’s side this sea­son. “It came very quickly but they have a good team, a good man­ager and I am very pleased to be here,” Chadli said. “I just want to help the team win as many games as pos­si­ble.” Chadli is West Brom’s third sign­ing of the sum­mer af­ter Matt Phillips ar­rived from QPR for a reported £5.5m and Bren­dan Gal­loway’s loan move from Ever­ton. Tony Pulis’ side are 10th in the Pre­mier League with four points from their first three games and the Bag­gies boss said: “He’s a top, top player and I’m de­lighted we’ve got him.

“I said last week that these sign­ings all had to be about play­ers who would im­prove our squad - and Nacer does pre­cisely that.” BBC Sports
