Phil Neville has described West Brom’s purchase of Nacer Chadli from Tottenham as a “very good signing.”
The Midlands club announced the signing of the former Spurs attacker on their official club website on Monday afternoon.
The signing of the 27-year-old is believed to be a club record for Tony Pulis’ side, with a fee of around £13million quoted for the Belgian forward. This was reported by Telegraph journalist John Percy on Sunday on his personal Twitter page.

Chadli starred in 40 encounters for Mauricio Pochettino’s side last season in all competitions scoring seven goals and providing five assists.
He has also made 30 appearances for Belgium, featuring four times at the World Cup in 2014 as the Red Devils were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Argentina.
The forward moved to White Hart Lane from Eredivisie side Twente in 2013 for £7million, netting the north London side a £6million profit in his three-year stay at the club.
He was deemed surplus to requirements under Pochettino as he looks to reshape his Spurs side, and Chadli hasn’t appeared for Tottenham in the new campaign.
In other Tottenham transfer news, Spurs have increased their offer for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha to £18million but it’s still not being considered.
