West Bromwich Albion have today completed the signing of Cardiff City striker Kenneth Zohore as confirmed on their official website.
The Danish international has signed a four-year-deal following his arrival from the Bluebirds and he will wear the number nine shirt which was recently vacated by the departure of Salomon Rondon to Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang.
Zohore is the second new arrival at the Hawthorns following the Croatian Filip Krovinovic arriving on loan from Benfica.
The 25-year-old striker will add much needed firepower to the ranks at the Hawthorns after Jay Rodriguez left for Burnley and Dwight Gayle returned to Newcastle following his loan spell last season.
Head coach Slaven Bilic is delighted with Zohore’s arrival. “He is a player who has got more than a bit of everything, he’s strong, he has pace, he has good skill,” said the Croatian.
“He knows the league, he knows the country, he’s already got good experience but he’s still got room to improve. He’s not the finished article.
“I hope he’s going to be a very good player for us.”
Zohore has also expressed that he has not yet fulfilled his potential and he is determined to showcase this at West Brom.
“It’s a new, big challenge for me and I’m really looking forward to playing games and scoring goals here. I want to help this club get back to the Premier League.”
“I spoke to Slaven and he told me about the way he wants to play football and how he sees me fitting into the system.“As a player, it’s important to have a manager that believes in you and makes you feel good.
“I’m hungry to do well. Nobody has seen my best yet but I know that it will be coming soon.”
