West Brom complete Markus Rosenberg signing

West Brom today made Markus Rosenberg their fourth signing of the summer as the Sweden international striker penned a three-year Hawthorns contract.

The 29-year-old joined, pending international clearance, on a free transfer from Werder Bremen with the Baggies beating off competition from Europe and Asia.

Head coach Steve Clarke said: "I'm delighted to welcome Markus to the club.

"He is an experienced striker who has scored goals in three of Europe's top leagues, as well as in the top European competitions, and is determined to prove himself in the Barclays Premier League.

"Markus will really increase competition for places in the forward areas and hopefully spur on the strikers we already have here.

"He had several other offers this summer but he made it clear that joining West Bromwich Albion was his first choice and we're really pleased we've been able to conclude a deal."

Rosenberg, who has been handed the No.8 shirt by the Baggies, will not be considered for tonight's friendly at Walsall.

Sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth added: "We've been keeping tabs on Markus for two or three years now and getting a player of his calibre is a real coup for this club. He had offers from Spain, Germany, Turkey, Russia and China."
