Robert Snodgrass is set to become Sam Allardyce's first signing at West Brom after the club agreed a deal with West Ham.

An 18-month deal for the 33-year-old Scottish winger has now been agreed, pending medical and final paperwork.

"I think as long as the medical goes alright, by tomorrow Robert Snodgrass will be a West Bromwich Albion player, which I'm delighted with," Allardyce said.

"I'm delighted that he's chosen to take up the challenge with us and trying to bring us a bit more Premier League experience and quality into the squad."

Sky Sports News understands there was other Premier League interest in Snodgrass, but he will join Allardyce's relegation-threatened side.

Snodgrass' West Ham contract was due to run out in the summer and he is deemed surplus to requirements by David Moyes at the London Stadium.

A permanent move for the former Scotland international leaves Allardyce's remaining loan slot available for another signing, after Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher joined the Baggies on a season-long loan in September.
