Espanyol striker Thievy Bifouma has joined West Brom on loan for the rest of the season.

The France under-21 international, who can play wide or up front, had been tracked by the club for a while and the new boss Pepe Mel said earlier on deadline day: "Today is a long day. At the moment there is no news but I hope for at least one more player.

"There are a lot of names but one striker is possible here today.

"But getting Anichebe playing good matches, Saido Berahino is a good player in the three position and Vydra too. Therefore it is not dangerous if another striker does not come in.

"Thievy is a young player, who scores goals, and he is a possibility."
