PSG midfielder joins West Brom on loan

PSG midfielder and Polish international Grzegorz Krychowiak has joined West Bromwich Albion on a season-long deal.

West Brom have been one of the biggest surprises of this beginning of the season in the Premier League. Already sitting at the fifth place in the standings, the Baggies have also shown their ambition not only through their results, but also through the quality signings they have made this summer window. From the signing of injury-flop Jay Rodriguez to that of Kieran Gibbs from Arsenal earlier today, Tony Pulis’ squad has been improving in terms of both quality and experience. This successful transfer window has also been highlighted by a success in retaining their key players at the club, with the only starter leaving the team being Stoke’s Darren Fletcher.

However, following the signing of Krychowiak on a season-long loan, WBA are proving that they will be aiming for a European spot. Krychowiak discussed his delight when asked about his choice. “I had a lot of offers from Spain and Italy. But this is a very ambitious club. There’s a good atmosphere here,” the Europa League winner said. John Williams, West Brom chairman, could not hide his excitement as well. “This is a fantastic loan agreement for Albion and we are very pleased to have completed the transfer. Grzegorz arrives with an impressive reputation that is well earned and a CV in European football which clearly displays his qualities.” Krychowiak is expected to play for the first team starting next month, and will be looking to prove his level yet once again, following a disappointing 2016-17 season with only seven appearances.
