Claudio Yacob: Has linked up with West Brom
West Bromwich Albion have confirmed that Argentina international Claudio Yacob has joined their pre-season training camp in Sweden.
The Baggies have been locked in talks with the 25-year-old over the past week and now he has flown to Scandinavia to link up with Steve Clarke's squad.
The midfielder, who has three caps to his name, will now train with the Baggies squad with a view to sealing a permanent deal.
West Brom sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth confirmed: "This will give Claudio the chance to take a closer look at us, and us at him."
