The Baggies announced on Wednesday that they have signed Poland international midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain.

Krychowiak, 27, only joined PSG from Sevilla last summer for $36 million but he has fallen down the pecking order with Les Parisiens and will now look to revive his career in the Premier League with West Brom.

Speaking about his arrival in the West Midlands, Krychowiak was delighted to try and help the Baggies push for a top 10 finish this season following their positive start to the season where they have seven points from nine.

“I had a lot of offers from Spain and Italy. But this is a very ambitious club. There’s a good atmosphere here,” Krychowiak said.

A talented player on the ball, Krychowiak will add poise to West Brom’s powerful unit as Tony Pulis has pulled off a real masterstroke in the transfer market to sign the holding midfielder.

The Poland international had some fun teasing his arrival at the Hawthorns with the club and Krychowiak interacting via Twitter to set things up.

Earlier on Wednesday left back Kieran Gibbs signed for West Brom from Arsenal, while Oliver BurkeGareth Barry, Ahmed Hegazi and Jay Rodriguez have all joined the Baggies this summer.

Who would rule out Pulis making some more moves between now and the end of the transfer window?
