Robson-Kanu impressed for Wales at Euro 2016, scoring a superb goal in the quarter-final win over Belgium, and there were said to be numerous clubs showing an interest in his signature.

The 27-year-old has been available on a free transfer since being released by Reading at the end of June and he has been taking his time on deciding where he will play this season.

He has now chosen to join the Baggies and becomes the fifth new arrival at the Hawthorns this summer after Nacer Chadli, Matt Phillips, Allan Nyom and Brendan Galloway.

Robson-Kanu will add some much-needed strength in the final third for Tony Pulis, who admitted after Sunday’s 0-0 draw at home to Middlesbrough that his squad required new blood.

The Welshman doesn’t have the most prolific goalscoring record, having bagged 24 times in 198 league outings for the Royals, but his hard-work fits well into the style of the former Stoke City boss.

Speaking on the move, Robson-Kanu said: “It’s a fantastic club and manager and I’m really happy to be here. 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.”
