West Brom have bolstered their attacking options for this season by signing Udinese striker Matej Vydra on a season-long loan deal.

Vyrdra, 21, spent last season on loan at Championship club Watford. The Czech striker had a successful spell scoring 20 league goals and being named Championship Player of the Season.

Albion head coach Steve Clarke believes the talented forward will be able to reproduce last season’s form in the Premier League.

"We had Matej watched throughout last season," said Clarke. "As well as some excellent scouting reports, we had some really good feedback from within Watford about Matej as both a player and person.

"I've said previously we're a bit light in the forward areas and Matej will increase competition for places.

"He's another good quality striker to add to the other three senior forwards we have here."

As well as Vydra West Brom has also signed striker Nicolas Anelka and centre-back Diego Lugano on free transfers and has re-signed former player Goran Popov on loan this summer.
