Former Sheffield United defender, Kean Bryan, has officially completed his move to West Bromwich Albion. Bryan made 13 appearances in the Premier League last season, and will now look to take that experience into the Championship with West Brom.
The transfer follows injuries in the Baggies’ backline to Dara O’Shea and Matt Clarke. Bryan comes in hoping to fill the gap the aforementioned players have left behind whilst on the sidelines. If he can provide adequate cover, then he may even earn a permanent starting place at the Hawthorns.
Kean Bryan will certainly hope to kick on and become an instant hit with the fans and the rest of the squad, as West Brom seek instant promotion back to the Premier League.

What Was Said?
After securing the signing Valérien Ismaël told the official West Bromwich Albion website:
“Kean has the same profile as a defender as Dara. He is a very aggressive, fast, centre-back, who is good in the build-up, is young, wants to learn, and has experience, so his profile is very good for us.
“The main difference to Dara is that Kean is left-footed and with Matt Clarke also out this was an opportunity for us to sign a player who can also play on the left side of our back three, as it is important to the balance of our team to have left-footed players in left-sided positions.
“Now, we need to build Kean into the squad and into the team. He didn’t have a normal pre-season and we need to manage him. At the same time, we will need him in the games, so we need to find the right balance.”
