West Brom have completed the signing of promising young striker Yuning Zhang from Vitesse for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the Baggies but will go on loan immediately to SV Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga, where he is set for a two-year spell.

Zhang is highly rated in his native country and scored two goals in his international debut for China last year.

Albion director of football administration Richard Garlic told the club's official website: "Zhang will get the chance to further develop at Bremen and he will be challenging for a place in a top European league. 

"His progress will be the subject of great interest here at Albion but also in Germany and in China."
