West Brom Sign Ideye For Club Record £9m

West Brom Sign Ideye For Club Record £9m

WEST BROM have signed Nigerian international Brown Ideye from Ukrainian side Dynamo Kyiv.

The 25-year-old has smashed the Baggies’ club record transfer fee after completing his £9m move to the Hawthorns.

West Brom boss Alan Irvine was delighted with his signing, telling the clubs official website: “Brown is a quality striker and I’m looking forward to working with him.

“He’s a strong, quick, powerful player who likes to get in behind defences and has plenty of Champions League and international experience.”

Ideye constitutes Irvine’s fifth signing of the summer – following Chris Baird, Craig Gardner, Joleon Lescott and Sebastien Pocognoli to the Midlands.

Although little is known about the Nigerian striker – Baggies fans will be pleased with his evident goalscoring prowess.

33 goals in 74 appearances for Ukrainian Premier League side Dynamo Kyiv proves he is capable of finding the net.

However eyebrows will be raised by West Brom fans after smashing their club record fee on a player who failed to make Stephen Keshi’s 23-man World Cup squad.

    I disagree with the comment that baggies fan will not be happy with signing of Brown Ideye because he does not made Keshi list 2014 world cup because Brown Ideye should have made great impact and most importantly because of his exclusion and the like of him, Nigeria team does not have bench / reserve to call to duty when thing were not working well during 2014 world cup . GOD BLESS NIGERIA

    THIS LANDMARK SIGNING FOR WEST BROM IS ALSO A CLEAR INDICATION OF THE GREAT QUALITIES OF BROWN IDEYE. HE HAS PACE, STRENGHT AND SMART WITH THE BALL. HE IS NOT ALSO SELFISH WITH BALL WHICH REASON BROUGHT THE SYNERGY WITH EMENIKE WHICH WAS BEHIND THE SUCCESS AT THE 2013 AFCON.
    I CONGRATULATE BROWN IDEYE AND NIGERIA BECAUSE THIS IS GOOD FOR OUR FOODBALL DEVELOPMENT.

    It is really amazing – the world football. Am so happy for him and Nigeria football. Baggies’ coach must have seen one or two things that Keshi couldn’t see in Ideye. Time would tell!

    Congratulations bro! I am happy for him, at least this is a consolation for missing out of the Nigeria world cup team
