West Bromwich Albion have splashed the cash on Dinamo Kiev‘s Nigerian striker Brown Ideye.
The 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year contract, plus a further year’s option in the club’s favour, after agreeing personal terms and passing a Hawthorns medical.
Ideye will wear the No.9 shirt and becomes the Baggies’ fifth summer signing.
His undisclosed transfer fee surpasses the amount Albion agreed with Sunderland for Stephane Sessegnon last summer.
The marksman, who boasts Champions League experience, arrives with a proven record having notched 74 goals in 182 career league appearances.
Ideye will meet his new team-mates when they return from the club’s pre-season training camp in Sacramento, California.
