Robson-Kanu joins the Baggies

West Bromwich Albion have completed the signing of Wales' European Championship hero Hal Robson-Kanu on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old was left without a club after his deal with Championship club Reading expired. However, his stand out performances for the Dragons in France left little doubt it would only be a matter of time before he found a new team.

He played a part in all five of Wales matches at the Euros, starting three and contributing two goals, one each against Slovakia and Belgium.

According to the announcement on West Brom's official website, Robson-Kanu was given special leave from the Wales squad to complete his deal with the Baggies.

"It was an important decision for me and my family and we took our time," he said. "But it's a fantastic club and manager and I'm really happy to be here. 

"I'm particularly pleased to be back in the Premier League. I am grateful for everything that Reading have done for me and I enjoyed my time there. But it's great to take this step."

He has penned a two-year deal with an option to extend for another year.
