Baggies seal Bifouma loan move

Espanyol have confirmed forward Thievy Bifouma has joined West Bromwich Albion on loan until the end of the season.

The Baggies will pay a loan fee of around 420,000, with an extra 85,000 based on various add-ons, for the France Under-21 international.

The 21-year-old is under contract with the Spanish side until 2017 after impressing on loan at Las Palmas in the Segunda Division last term.

His switch will bolster Pepe Mel's attacking options as he seeks to keep the Baggies in the top flight for another season.
