Morgan Amalfitano says that he is looking forward to playing football for West Bromwich Albion.

French midfielder Morgan Amalfitano has said that he and West Bromwich Albion share the same 'footballing philosophy'.

The 28-year-old has joined the Baggies on a season-long loan deal from Marseille and could make his first Premier League start against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

"I am happy to come to England and I am also happy to begin a new challenge," he told the club's official website.

"West Brom is a very good team that plays good football - which is very important for me. I think the team has the same football philosophy as me."

Amalfitano, capped once by Les Bleus, is the elder brother of Newcastle United midfielder Romain Amalfitano.
