West Bromwich Albion have confirmed the signing of Allan Nyom from Watford for a fee believed to be around £4million.
Nyom, who will wear the club’s No.2 jersey, has put pen-to-paper on a four-year contract and is expected to be put straight in the starting line-up for the clash away at Bournemouth on September 10.
The Cameroon international leaves Vicarage Road after just one season, having made 32 appearances to help the club avoid relegation in the previous campaign.
Speaking about the switch, the 28-year-old said: “I received a call from my agent last night and he told me about the offer to come here and I was happy to do so.
“Last year was my first in England. I was so happy to play in the Premier League as I think it is one of the best leagues in the world. I enjoyed it a lot.
“The Premier League is completely different to other Leagues because here there is more intensity, more fight… the atmosphere in England is better than Spain.”
Nyom is the fourth new arrival this summer after Nacer Chadli, Matt Phillips and Brendan Galloway, who joined on a season-long loan deal from Everton.
