West Brom excited about arrival of Allan from Dundee United

West Bromwich Albion boss Roy Hodgson was thrilled after the club managed to secure the signing of Scott Allan.

The highly-rated 20-year old midfielder has joined the Baggies from Dundee United on a year-and-a-half deal with the option for a further 12 months and Hodgson was delighted to see him sign for his club.

"We've followed Scott for a long time, we've pursued him, and we've made every effort to persuade him to come to the club and are delighted it has happened," said Hodgson.

"He will be a very good addition to our squad. This is not just a player we're bringing to help for the next four or five months.

"This is a player that we think, in the next few years, will be an important player for the club."
