West Bromwich Albion have this afternoon confirmed the arrival of Alex Pritchard on a loan spell from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 22 year old comes in on a deal until the end of the season and he’s capable of playing on the wing or as an attacking midfielder.

The England Under 21 international joined ahead of the 12pm deadline so he comes into contention to make his debut in tomorrow’s game against Swansea City.

He’s been handed the No 20 shirt and speaking to following his arrival, he explained.

‘It’s been a hectic few hours – I was close to going elsewhere – but when this came about I didn’t hesitate to come here. I’m here and excited to get going. I spoke to Tony Pulis and coaches and was told to do my best, work hard and make an impression. I’m an attacking player, I like to get on the ball, make things happen and have an eye for goal. I can play on the wing or centrally – it’s a dream to play in the Premier League and I hope I get that chance.’

Taking over on media duties with head coach Tony Pulis otherwise engaged on ‘football matters’ and not at the training ground today, joint assistant head coach Dave Kemp said of the deal.

‘We’re delighted to have him here – he’s a bright young player. He’s had a couple of loans at Swindon and Brentford and done very well. He’s 22 now and he’s ready the make an impact in the Premier League. I saw a lot of him at Swindon and Brentford – he’s a good young player and we are looking forward to integrating him.’
