first_img1 Sebastian Blanco West Brom have announced the signing of Argentina wide midfielder Sebastian Blanco on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Ukrainian side Metalist Kharkiv.The 26-year-old, capped twice by his country, can play on either flank and has become the Baggies’ eleventh summer acquisition.“I’m really pleased that we’ve managed to add Sebastian to the squad,” head coach Alan Irvine told West Brom’s official website“He’s an Argentina international who joined Metalist for a lot of money. Unfortunately, he suffered an injury not long after the move, which held up his progress.“Since then, he’s shown his quality. He’s adept with both feet, is a nice crosser of the ball, creates chances and also scores goals.“With the players we’ve brought in this summer, the squad has a much better balance thanks to the hard work of the chairman (Jeremy Peace), Richard Garlick, (technical director) Terry Burton and the recruitment staff.”last_img
