DONE DEAL: Brighton midfielder Jason Molumby confirmed as West Brom player

Brighton midfielder Jason Molumby will join West Bromwich Albion on permanent basis at the end of the season.

The Republic of Ireland star has spent the season at the Hawthorns, making 30 appearances in the Championship.

And the Baggies have decided to exercise a clause in Molumby's loan deal which can make the move permanent after 25 appearances.

Baggies boss Steve Bruce said: "We're really pleased to have Jayson on board permanently.

"He's a young player full of energy and passion and we see plenty of potential in him to grow and develop further.

"He's only 22 and he's already played more than 75 games in the Championship.

"He's managed to force himself into our XI recently and now his challenge is to stay there by continuing to show improvements in his game."

Albion coach Graham Potter added: "Jayson has had a good loan experience at West Brom this season and played games regularly, which is good for his development.

"This is a good move for him and on behalf of everyone at the club I wish him all the best for the next stage of his career."
