Fulham midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah has joined West Bromwich Albion in their their first January signing of the month on deadline day.

Chalobah, 28, has penned an 18-month deal at The Hawthorns having checked in from west London, where he was out of contract at Craven Cottage this summer.

He is Carlos Corberan's first signing as Albion boss after the head coach identified midfield as the department he wished to strengthen this month.

Corberan revealed 'hard-working athlete' Chalobah has the qualities to make a real impact in the Championship for play-off-hunting Albion.

Chalobah, who was born in Sierra Leone but has one cap from England, had fallen down the pecking order at Fulham.

The Chelsea youth graduate helped the Cottagers to Championship promotion last season, where he made 20 appearances in the league and 22 in all competitions.

Fulham FC statement
The Club can confirm that Nathaniel Chalobah has joined West Bromwich Albion on a permanent deal.

Chalobah arrived at Fulham on deadline day in the summer of 2021 and marked his debut with two assists in a 4-1 victory away to Birmingham City.

Injuries hindered his progress immediately afterwards but he returned to the side for our memorable consecutive victories over Reading, Bristol City and Birmingham in the New Year, a run which saw us score 19 times in three matches.

A regular in the squad for the remainder of the year, Chalobah ended our title winning campaign with 22 appearances to his name.

He added a further six to that number this season, four of which came in the Premier League, most recently in our SW6 derby victory over Chelsea this month.

All at Fulham would like to thank Nate for his efforts during his time with us, and we wish him every success at the Hawthorns.
