West Brom adds Amalfitano on loan

Updated: September 2, 2013

West Bromwich, England (Sports Network) – West Bromwich has bolstered its
squad with the addition of midfielder Morgan Amalfitano on a season-long loan
from Marseille.

The 28-year-old appeared in 26 Ligue 1 games for Marseille last term, but has
made just two substitute appearances this season after falling down the
pecking order.

West Brom boss Steve Clarke will hope that the arrival of Amalfitano can boost
a woeful attack that has yet to score a goal in three league matches, leaving
the Baggies on the bottom of the Premier League with one point.

Amalfitano has been capped one time by France, and West Brom will have the
option to make the move permanent for a fee of $3 million.
