West Brom’s club-record signing Brown Ideye will finally link up with his new Baggies team-mates this week after confirming his visa issues have been resolved.
Nigeria striker Ideye signed for Albion just over a fortnight ago for a fee believed to be around £10million, but has been forced to wait in his homeland whilst the matter was cleared.
But via his Twitter account the former Dynamo Kiev forward said: “So happy to announce my Visa has been issued. Will join the team ASAP.”
Albion head coach Alan Irvine has described Ideye, who put pen to paper on a three-year deal with an option for a fourth season, as “strong, quick and powerful.”
Ideye, however, will now have to integrate himself quickly into the squad ahead of Albion’s Barclays Premier League season-opener at home Sunderland on August 16.
