Karlan Grant joins West Brom
On the other hand, West Brom signed Karlan Grant for £15 million after spending more than a year at Championship side Huddersfield. He scored a total number of 23 goals and provided 5 assists for the Championship side which attracted the attention of West Brom.
The 23-year-old English center-forward took to his Twitter page on Thursday to share a tweet thanking Huddersfield for their support during his time at the club.
“To all at @htafc, I want to say a massive Thankyou for the support you’ve shown me over the last 18 months! It’s been a pleasure & I wish you all the best for the future”, he tweeted.
Afterward, Karlan Grant took to his Twitter page again to express how delighted he was to sign his 6 years deal with West Brom. “Delighted to sign for @WBA can’t wait to get started let’s go”, he tweeted.
While announcing the deal on Thursday night, West Brom said in a statement that the club has confidence that the 23-year-old striker is ready to prove himself in the Premier League.
“We are confident we have signed a young player who has proved he is ready for the challenges of the Premier League,” said West Brom technical director Luke Dowling.
“He has scored goals throughout his career, including the few months he had with Huddersfield at this level two years ago.”
Grant was able to sign for West Brom even though the transfer window in the Premier League has closed since October 5, because the Premier League and English Football League (EFL) clubs agreed to keep doing business between themselves until October 16. Hence, today is the deadline date for clubs in England to seal all pending deals or forget about them until January.
