Double deal delights Robbo

11 Aug 2006 - 08:06:10

West Brom boss Bryan Robson is delighted with the captures of Manchester United youngsters Luke Steele and Paul McShane.

Goalkeeper Steele, 21, and central defender McShane, 20, moved to The Hawthorns on three-year contracts as part of the deal which saw Tomasz Kuszczak join United on a season-long loan.

Steele has Championship experience from a loan spell at Coventry, while McShane impressed on loan at Brighton last season and Robson is confident both will develop in to important players for the Baggies.

"With Tomasz going on loan to United, with the possibility of a permanent move, and the two young lads coming to us, it's a great deal for this football club," he told the club's official website.

"Luke has done well in the Championship before. We feel he's got improvement in him and Joe Corrigan has already shown he can improve keepers at this football club.

"The fact Paul was voted Player of the Year at Brighton despite being a young lad in a struggling side shows what he's all about.

"He's a very aggressive centre-half. He's not the tallest but he makes up for that with his aggression - he attacks the ball really well.

"We feel he will only get better playing alongside the lads we've got here."
