French international winger Morgan Amalfitano has joined Albion from Marseille on a season-long loan deal, with a view to a permanent transfer.
The 28 year old will provide much needed competition to Albion’s midfielder with the former Lorient player comfortable in either a wide or central position.
Baggies boss Steve Clarke welcomed the arrival of Amalfitano on loan.
“I’m delighted to welcome Morgan to the club,” he said.
“He is predominantly a right-sided midfielder who can also operate in a number of other midfield and attacking positions.
“Morgan is a technical player with good quality on the ball. He also has fantastic work-rate and we believe his game is well suited to the Barclays Premier League.
“Morgan’s arrival will increase competition in midfield and add more quality and depth to the squad.”
Amalfitano earned his only international cap during France’s 2-1 victory against Germany in February last year, when he provided an assist for Flourent Malouda.
