West Bromwich Albion have made a statement in the transfer window by snapping up Belgium international Nacer Chadli on a four-year deal from Tottenham for an undisclosed fee.
The 27-year-old was deemed surplus to requirement by Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino and now becomes the Baggies second permanent signing this summer following the arrival of Matt Phillips from Queens Park Rangers while Brendan Galloway joined on loan from Everton.
Chadli said: “I feel very good to be here. It came very quickly but I spoke to the Club and they have a good team, a good manager and I am very pleased to be here.
“My ambitions? I just want to help the team win as many games as possible.”
Albion manager, Tony Pulis was delighted with the deal saying: “He’s a top, top player and I’m delighted we’ve got him.
“I said last week that these signings all had to be about players who would improve our squad – and Nacer does precisely that.”
Chadli arrived England in 2013 to join Tottenham Hotspur from Twente and will now continue his sojourn with Tony Pulis West Brom.
