West Brom have completed the signing of Gonzalo Jara in a £1.4million deal from Colo Colo.
The Baggies have been chasing the Chile international for much of the summer, with an agreement having been in the pipeline for some time.
They have now landed their man, with the versatile defender all set to finalise his move from South America.
He will require international clearance before officially signing for West Brom, though, and that process is set to rule him out of Wednesday's Carling Cup date with Rotherham and Saturday's Championship clash with Sheffield United.
"Gonzalo is an exciting, quick, technical and aggressive player," Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo told the club's official website.
"He's a Chile international and very versatile, which will give me good options.
"He's still young (at 24) and has a strong desire to achieve.
"Gonzalo wants to go to that next level and prove himself in Europe."
