The Albion announced on their official website that Sheffield United striker Callum Robinson has joined the club on loan for the remainder of the season, with the 24-year-old attacker becoming the first signing of the January transfer window.
Will West Brom make another signing before the deadline?
Yes, Bilic knows we need signings
No, we've wasted too much time
West Brom have been searching for a new forward for the majority of the transfer window, with Slaven Bilic admitting last night to The Express and Star that he is aiming to bring in at least two new faces this month, and plenty of Baggies supporters on social media were buzzing to see Robinson join the club.
Here’s what lots of West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about the loan signing of Robinson…
Finally. A new striker in that could save us from relegation. Good signing.

As stats from Transfermarkt show, Robinson has been poor for the Blades this season in the Premier League, scoring just once for Chris Wilder’s side.
