West Brom manager Gary Megson has broken the club's transfer record to sign FC Copenhagen and Danish international defender Martin Albrechtsen.

The 24-year-old Albrechtsen arrived at The Hawthorns this afternoon after agreeing a three-year contract which also features a clause allowing Albion to extend the deal into a fourth season.

Albion's previous highest expenditure on a player was the 2.5million spent on striker Lee Hughes when he switched from Coventry in August 2001.

But Albrechtsen's signature has cost Albion an initial 2.5million down payment plus an additional 200,000 paid when he makes a certain number of appearances.

Well i am not sure about the Baggies they have the best chance out of the 3 new boys to stay up. They have been up in recent years and know what it is all about. They have some half decent players and with a few signings they could do a Portsmouth and avoid the drop.

West Brom have failed in an ambitious bid to sign PSV Eindhoven striker Mateja Kezman.

Albion reportedly made an approach for the free-scoring 25-year-old, only to be told the £7m-rated Serbia and Montenegro international was not interested in a move to The Hawthorns.

Kezman, who scored 30 goals in 29 league appearances for PSV last season, has just a year left on his contract with the Dutch club.

He joined PSV from Partizan Belgrade in July 2000 as a replacement for Ruud van Nistelrooy and he has scored more than 100 goals during his spell in Holland.

West Brom have agreed a 500,000 fee with Birmingham for centre-back Darren Purse.

The Baggies are now in talks with the former Oxford and Leyton Orient defender, who has struggled to break into the Blues' first team ahead of Kenny Cunningham and Matthew Upson.

Albion chairman Jeremy Peace told the club's official website: "We've agreed terms with Birmingham and have now begun negotiations with Darren and his representative."

The fee could rise to 750,000 subject to the fulfilment of an appearances clause.

Not a bad signing for west brom. I think they will still struggle though, maybe not as bad as the other two teams that came up.

West Brom boss Gary Megson landed Birmingham defender Darren Purse in a 750,000 deal and vowed the Baggies' summer spending would continue.

Purse has signed a three-year deal at The Hawthorns after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

He is the third new face at the Premiership new boys following Leicester's Riccardo Scimeca and club record 2.7million signing Martin Albrechtsen.

But Megson insisted Albion's statement of intent would continue as he seeks to avoid another immediate relegation.

West Brom's ambitious bid to sign Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour looks set to end in disappointment.

Albion chairman Jeremy Peace made his move for Parlour at a Premier League meeting earlier this month.

But the trail has gone cold since then, with Gary Megson bracing himself for disappointment.

Megson is actively chasing a number of targets as he seeks to add to the captures of Riccardo Scimeca, Martin Albrechtsen and Darren Purse.

Mateja Kezman has ruled out a move to West Bromwich Albion after the Premiership new boys joined Charlton Athletic in the race to sign the PSV Eindhoven striker.

The Serbo-Montenegrin international is expected to leave the Philips Stadion this summer in search of a fresh challenge.

Thus far, Charlton are believed to be the only club to have submitted a firm offer for the prolific hit-man but it is rumoured to be slightly below PSV's valuation.

That would have been a massive signing if they had got Kezman. They have made a couple of decent signings and i don't think they will struggle as badly as the other two teams that came up. They might just stay up. It all depends on how others do.

Middlesbrough have accepted a 1,900,000 offer from Premiership new-boys West Brom for midfielder Jonathan Greening.

The former Manchester United winger will travel to The Hawthorns for contract talks and a medical after accepting his time on Teesside is at an end.

Boro had previously rejected a 1.7m bid from the Baggies for a player who cost them 2m when he left Old Trafford in August 2001.

Poland goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak has joined West Brom on a three-year deal from Hertha Berlin.

The goalkeeper's initial three-year deal has an option for an additional 12 months.

Wales international Jason Koumas has ended concern over his future by signing a new contract with West Brom.

Only last week, Koumas appeared determined to leave The Hawthorns after submitting a transfer request.

The Baggies swiftly rejected the midfielder's plea to quit and have now persuaded Koumas to pen a four-year deal with the club.

Charlton Athletic had purportedly been interested in the 24-year-old but he will now lead West Brom upon their return to The Premiership.

West Brom's long hunt to sign a top striker is set to end after Kanu made a move to The Hawthorns his top priority, according to his agent.

Albion manager Gary Megson has been seeking a big-name frontman all summer, but has so far drawn a blank after missing out on the likes of Paul Dickov, Marcus Bent and Lomana LuaLua.

But now reports suggests Megson patience is about to be rewarded after former Arsenal striker Kanu, who was released at the end of last season, hinted that a move to the Premiership new-boys was his preferred destination.
