LONDON, Aug 25, 2009 (AFP) - West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo revealed on Tuesday he is set to complete his sixth signing of the summer with the arrival of versatile Chile international Gonzalo Jara for 1.4 million pounds (2.3 million dollars). The Colo Colo defender, who is 24 on Saturday, has agreed personal terms with the Championship side and signed a three-year contract with an option for a further year but is waiting for international clearance. Di Matteo said: "Gonzalo is an exciting, quick, technical and aggressive player. "He's a Chilean international and a versatile player which gives me good options, he is still young and has a strong desire to achieve." West Brom were relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season along with Newcastle and Middlesbrough.
