The 26-year-old will now travel to Hong Kong to join the Baggies for their involvement in the Premier League Asia Trophy but West Brom still need to get worldwide clearance to feature in the tournament.

He has travelled to Hong Kong to link up with his new team-mates, with the Baggies set to face Leicester City in the first game of the Asia Trophy on Wednesday.

Albion are now trying to gain worldwide clearance for the former Fiorentina man to play against Leicester City this Wednesday.

"We're delighted to add Ahmed to the squad".

West Brom, who usually adopt an ultra-defensive strategy under manager Tony Pulis, finished 10th in the Premier League last season. He's got good pedigree and has played for some good clubs.

After seeing a potential loan deal for Chelsea centre-back Kurt Zouma fall through, West Brom have shown interest in acquiring the services of ex-Fiorentina defender Hegazy for a reported fee of one million euros. It's really, really good for us'.

Hegazy was named in the African Cup of Nations team of the tournament after playing every single minute for Egypt en route to the final, which they lost to Cameroon.

The Egyptian spent time with Italian club Fiorentina earlier in his career, only for injuries to hamper his progress.

Hegazy reportedly flew over to England this weekend to undergo a medical after Al Ahly granted him special dispensation to miss Monday's end-of-season Cairo derby with rivals Zamalek.
