West Bromwich Albion have added Argentine international Claudio Yacob to their ranks. Yacob was a free agent after being released by Racing Club de Avellaneda and was training with the Baggies with a view to a permanent switch to the Hawthorns. He has now put pen to paper a three year contract with the Midlands outfit and the deal only needs to be rubber stamped to become a formality.
Yacob becomes new Baggies boss Steve Clarke’s third signing of the summer after Ben Foster and Yassine El Ghanassy.
Yacob, 25, was appointed as Racing’s captain in his teens and has been one of the clubs’ most influential players. He has also been capped by Argentina at international level.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

West Bromwich Albion are interested in FC Twente’s winger Emir Bajrami and are keen to get the Swedish international to sign on the dotted line before the end of the January transfer window. Baggies boss Roy Hodgson turned his attention to Bajrami after cooling his interest in Zenit St.Petersburg’s Hungarian star Szabolcs Huszti.
Bajrami, who arrived at Twente from Elfsborg in his native Sweden in 2010, has grown into his own following the sale of Bryan Ruiz to Fulham. The 23 year old has already scored four times and new manager Steve McClaren, who started him in his first two games in charge, seems to consider him as part of his long term plans.
West Brom are currently 15th in the Premier League.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

West Bromwich Albion striker Roman Bednar has left the club to join Championship outfit Blackpool on a free transfer. The Czech striker was unable to break into the first team at the Hawthorns, whom he joined in 2008 from Heart of Midlothian, and opted for a switch of surroundings to Bloomfield Road.
Bednar was a regular in his initial days at the Hawthorns, netting 34 times for them, but his last goal in club colours was way back in the 2009-10 season. He has made only one appearance for Roy Hodgson’s side in the current 11-12 season and Blackpool boss Ian Holloway said he hoped the forward would help them in their push for promotion back to the Premier League.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson has dismissed rumours linking the Baggies to Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak.

However Hodgson categorically denied that a move would be made for Pogrebnyak, who joined Stuttgart from Zenit St.Petersburg in 2007. Hodgson did however add that West Brom hadn’t abandoned the search for a striker and did not rule out the chance of somebody moving to Hawthorns before the close of the window on Tuesday.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

West Bromwich Albion striker Chris Wood has agreed to join Bristol City on loan till the end of the season. Robins striker Derek McInnes is a long time admirer of the 20 year old New Zealand striker, having previously failed to sign him when he was in charge of SPL club St.Johnstone.
McInnes made his move for Wood shortly after the latter’s loan spell with Birmingham City came to an end. Blues boss Chris Houghton was eager to re-sign Wood because of his amazing form at St.Andrew’s, but the Robins now seem to have won the race for the Kiwi international.
Wood could make his Robins debut this weekend when they take on Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email
