West Brom have confirmed the signing of Celtic striker Marc-Antoine Fortune from Celtic on a two-year contract.
The French hit-man enjoyed a successful loan spell with The Baggies in the second half of the 2008/9 season after joining on loan from Nancy.
He opted to join Tony Mowbray at Celtic permanently that summer, but has now rejoined West Brom after a year's SPL football.
Fortune played in Celtic's Europa League exit to Utrecht and has been registered in time to make his debut in Sunday's clash with Liverpool.
Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo is delighted to see Fortune back at The Hawthorns and believe he will have no problems settling back in again.
"I'm delighted to welcome Marco back to the club," Di Matteo told the club's official website.
"The great thing about this signing is that it won't take him long to settle in because he knows the club inside out.
"He also knows what this league is all about.
"Marco got on really well with the other players during his loan here and they're all delighted to see him back.
"He is a powerful striker who can hold the ball up and bring others into play and having also signed Peter Odemwingie last week, we now have plenty of competition up front."
