West Brom have signed Watford right-back Allan Nyom and could also secure a deal for Hal Robson-Kanu.

Nyom, who made 32 Premier League appearances for Watford last season, has signed a four-year contract after a £3million move.

“I received a call from my agent last night and he told me about the offer to come here and I was happy to do so,” he told wba.co.uk.

“Last year was my first in England. I was so happy to play in the Premier League as I think it is one of the best leagues in the world. I enjoyed it a lot.

“The Premier League is completely different to other leagues because here there is more intensity, more fight… the atmosphere in England is better than Spain.

“The team here is good and with good players, a team that plays together. I’m going to try to bring energy and to give my best every game; I want to help the team.”

The Baggies are pushing ahead with a deal for Robson Kanu after the 27-year-old was granted permission to leave the Wales squad.

He is a free agent after leaving Reading in the summer and is not governed by the window so there is no time pressure on Albion to get the deal done on Wednesday.

Robson Kanu scored twice in Wales’ run to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 and netted five goals for Reading in the Sky Bet Championship last season.

The Baggies are also looking at bringing Leonardo Ulloa in from Leicester while Callum McManaman and Rickie Lambert, who is set for a move to Cardiff, will be allowed to leave if they can find clubs.

Saido Berahino is set to stay while a club-record £15million deal is still on the table for Malaga midfielder Ignacio Camacho after the Baggies were priced out of a move for Sporting Lisbon man William Carvalho.

Ulloa remains an option for the Baggies with the striker’s future up in the air at Leicester.

He is prepared to quit the King Power Stadium, with the Foxes breaking their transfer record for Sporting striker Islam Slimani, but could also stay despite falling further down the pecking order under Claudio Ranieri.

Ulloa wants assurances he will get more playing time but all options are open for the 30-year-old.
