Wes Hoolahan: West Brom sign midfielder after Norwich exit

West Brom have signed free agent midfielder Wes Hoolahan on a short-term contract.

The former Republic of Ireland worldwide scored 54 goals in 352 appearances for the Canaries between 2008 and 2018, leaving the club at the end of his contract last season.

The playmaker has agreed a short-term deal that can be extended by the club.

Hoolahan ended a 10-year spell with Norwich at the end of last season and has been without a club since, but a trial during the global break convinced Baggies boss Darren Moore to sign the Irishman.

In comments reported by the Express and Star, Darren Moore has suggested that West Brom will look to decide in the next seven days whether they plan to offer contracts to Wes Hoolahan and Russell Martin. He is a great pro and I think everyone knows the quality he possesses.

Hoolahan is unlikely to feature as the Baggies return to action in a local derby against Birmingham on Friday evening, but will provide another option for Moore during the club's hectic Sky Bet Championship schedule.

"The agreement is short term but there is the potential for Wes to stay longer if things work out. Every single player will be important to us". I know what it's like to play into my mid-30s and the areas of sports science and medicine have developed even further since my day.

"I've got no concerns about Wes on that score".

Fellow Norwich legend Russell Martin has also been training with the Baggies but reports - which were accurate on Hoolahan's imminent signing - have suggested the Scotland worldwide defender will not be joining Moore's squad.
