Skysport report on West Brom: West brom announce three transfer to be completed this week

Three Wolves and West Brom transfers will be completed this weekend.
Local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion are likely to complete three signings this weekend.
The Black Country teams have had a busy week, with Wolves likely to finalize two moves and West Brom expected to sign their second of the window.

The Baggies made their first summer addition on Thursday, acquiring midfielder Ousmane Diakite on a free transfer. The Malian, who played 34 games and scored two goals for Austrian Bundesliga team TSV Hartberg last season, has signed a two-year contract with a 12-month extension option.

Wolves, meanwhile, are moving in on Brazilian wonderkid Pedro Lima following a hijack on Chelsea. The 17-year-old right-back will join from Sport Recife for about €8 million (£6.7 million), with bonuses, on a five-year contract.

The Lima transaction is anticipated to be completed within the next few days, with flights scheduled for the teenager to arrive in England. Medical checks will be done before he signs his contract.

The Wanderers aren’t done yet, as Celta Vigo forward Jorgen Strand Larsen appears to be on his way to Molineux. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Old Gold have agreed on a €30 million (£25.3 million) package to sign the Norwegian international.

Personal negotiations are also well underway, implying that the 24-year-old is close to finalizing his move. It might be completed as early as this weekend, though the club’s media coverage may delay the announcement due to the magnitude of the transfer.

Baggies transfer is awaiting announcement.
West Brom are poised to recruit Tobjorn Heggem from IF Brommapojkarna, after the acquisition of Diakite. The defender, who will sign a permanent contract, passed a medical after agreeing on a cost.


The Norwegian, who plays mostly as a centre-back but is also frequently used as a left-back, is expected to provide Carlos Corberan with exceptional defensive versatility. It’s a wise choice because Heggem can directly replace the departing Erik Pieters. His height will also prove useful.
