West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo is set to complete his sixth signing of the summer having snapped up versatile Chile international Gonzalo Jara for £1.4 million.

The Colo Colo defender, who is 24 on Saturday, has agreed personal terms and signed a three-year contract with an option for a further year but is unavailable for the upcoming matches against Rotherham and Sheffield United as the Baggies await international clearance.

A delighted Di Matteo told the club website: "Gonzalo is an exciting, quick, technical and aggressive player."

He added: "He's a Chilean international and a versatile player which gives me good options, he is still young and has a strong desire to achieve."

Jara has captained the Chilean international side and has been a regular feature in their bid to qualify for the 2010 World Cup.
