The Nigerian striker signed for West Brom on July 18 for a fee believed to be in the region of £10million but has been forced to wait in his homeland whilst the visa issues were resolved.

Ideye revealed the news on his official Twitter account saying: "So happy to announce my visa has been issued. Will join the team ASAP."

Head coach Alan Irvine has described Ideye, who put pen to paper on a three-year deal with an option for a fourth season, as "strong, quick and powerful".

Ideye, however, will now have to integrate himself quickly into the squad ahead of their Premier League season-opener at home Sunderland on August 16.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
