DONE DEAL: West Brom sign Egyptian defender Hegazi

West Brom have signed Egypt defender Ahmed Hegazi on a season-long loan deal, reports BBC Sport.

The centre-back arrives from Egyptian side Al Ahly, where he spent two years after leaving Italian club Fiorentina in 2015 following an injury-hit spell.

Premier League side West Brom have the option to sign Hegazi, 26, permanently at the end of the loan period.

"He's a good addition. He's got good pedigree and played for some good clubs," said Baggies boss Tony Pulis.

"If he does well, we've already agreed a final deal. It's really, really good for us."
