Baggies set to bring in Czech forward.
West Brom have officially confirmed the signing of Udinese striker Matej Vydra on a season long loan deal.
The young forward set alight the Championship last season with a string of highly impressive displays for Watford.
Watford had hoped to re-sign Vydra but it is thought that his parent club, Udinese, were keen for him to test himself at a higher level.
That has paved the way for Vydra to join the Baggies on loan, where he is set to remain for the length of the season.
Vydra’s arrival is likely to give Baggies manager Steve Clarke some much needed attacking options.
The club thrived last season as Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku arrived on loan from Chelsea.
Lukaku finished the season as the Black Country club’s top scorer but his impressive performances did not go unnoticed and it now appears that Jose Mourinho is likely to insist on the youngster remaining at Stamford Bridge.
That has prompted Clarke to search for a replacement and it now appears that he has brought in a new striker in time for the start of the Premier League season next weekend.
West Brom beat off interest from the likes of Sunderland, Swansea and West Ham to secure Vydra’s signature.
