Highly-rated Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Chris Brunt has signed for West Brom.
Wednesday accepted a £3million bid for Brunt, who was also a target for Fulham, and the 22-year-old has now agreed a four-year contract at The Hawthorns after passing his medical.
West Brom boss Tony Mowbray is delighted to have secured Brunt, who becomes the 10th new arrival at The Hawthorns this summer, as he plots The Baggies' return to the Premier League.
"Chris is a player whose ambitions match our own," Mowbray told West Brom's official website.
"He wants to play at the top level and we are delighted he's chosen our club as a vehicle to hopefully take him there.
"He is a welcome addition to the squad and will increase competition for places in an area where, we feel, we already have a lot of quality."
Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday manager Brian Laws has admitted his disappointment at losing Brunt to one of The Owls' Championship rivals.
"As a manager you have to be tough and I'll pick myself up and get on with it," said Laws.
"Chris has played his last game for Sheffield Wednesday and I'm very disappointed to lose a player of his ability.
"He's one of the best left-sided players outside the Premier League and he's gone to one of our rivals.
"But money talks. We're not in the strongest financial position and debts have to be paid. It's a football decision, but we'll get on with it."
Brunt will not be eligible to make his West Brom debut until the meeting with Barnsley on 1st September because he is serving a three-match ban following the red card he received when playing against Groningen in Wednesday's pre-season preparations.
