Kana-Biyik joins the Throstles for a fee of £3.4 million from Stade Rennais FC in the French Ligue Un. He leaves the club after making 28 appearances in one season after the joined Stade from Havre AC in 2010. Upon arriving at the Hawthorns for a first look around his new home ground, Jean-Armel had this to say “Obviously it is great to be joining a club like West Brom, with them of course being in the greatest league in the world, and with their fantastic fan backing, but, with this said, a part of me will miss my time at Stade Rennais, and I would like to thank all the fans and staff at that wonderful club.”

West Brom’s other new signing is 20 year old Italian Lorenzo Insigne, who joins the Throstles from Serie A club Napoli for a fee of £550k. The 20 year old had spent 3 years at Napoli, although much of that time was spent on loan at Foggia and Citta De La Cava. Upon his arrival at the Hawthorns, Insigne fronted several members of the media, and took the time to thank all the Napoli fans, and to state his excitement at joining West Brom.
