West Bromwich Albion have confirmed the permanent signing of midfielder Matheus Pereira from Sporting Lisbon following his successful loan spell last season.

He won the club's Player of the Season award after scoring eight goals and supplying 16 assists in 42 appearances.

“Everybody is aware of the impact he made in his first season and from speaking to him I know he is now very excited by the challenge of playing for Albion in the Premier League," West Brom sporting and technical director Luke Dowling told the club's official website.

Pereira is the club’s first signing of the summer.
