Clarke was happy to welcome a new signing, who did appear set to join Stoke City.
â€śIâ€™ve said many times over the past few weeks that weâ€™ve been looking to bring in one more defender and Iâ€™m delighted weâ€™ve managed to sign Goran,â€ť said the Albion boss.
â€śWe allowed two left-backs (Joe Mattock and Nicky Shorey) to leave at the end of last season so itâ€™s very pleasing weâ€™ve got another naturally left-sided player within the group to give us more balance.
â€śWeâ€™ve now got good competition for places in all areas of the squad.
â€śGoran is a player the club have closely monitored for around three years so we know what weâ€™re getting.
â€śHe has also given up the opportunity to play Champions League football with Dynamo Kiev to join Albion in the Premier League and heâ€™s determined to do well here.â€ť
