West Brom have signed Brendan Galloway on a season-long loan deal from Everton, beating Championship Newcastle to his signature.
West Brom boss Tony Pulis has been hunting a left-back after Chris Brunt was injured in March and was forced to play Jonny Evans out of position.

Galloway, 20, who is West Brom’s second signing of the summer, has made 21 appearances for the Toffees since joining from MK Dons in 2014 but is yet to play this season and his last game came in a January FA Cup win over Carlisle.
Everton beat the Baggies 2-1 in the Premier League on Saturday with Galloway failing to make the squad.
He could make his West Brom debut when they travel to Northampton in the EFL Cup on Tuesday should Albion receive clearance in time.
