Following the reported medical today, Nicolas Anelka has become Albion’s first signing of the summer.

The experienced striker joins us on a free transfer and will wear the No 39 jersey. He has signed a one year deal, with the club retaining a further year’s option.

Obviously, Steve Clarke will now renew his working relationship with the player who he knows from both their time at Chelsea.

Speaking to wba.co.uk the gaffer said of the capture.

‘We are missing a bit of firepower from last year – we’re trying to put that right – and to kick off with the signing of Nicolas is a great boost for everyone at the club. The sole focus is trying to build on what we did last season. The more quality players you can bring to the club the better and no one can question Nicolas’ quality.’
