West Brom have completed the signing of Romanian defender Cosmin Contra on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid.

The Baggies will pay the Spanish club after each time the 28-year-old right-back represents them.

Contra joined the Primera Liga outfit in September 2002 for 5m but has struggled with his form and an ankle ligament injury over the last year.

Contra was a part of the Romanian side that dumped England out of Euro 2000 and has won 43 caps for his country.
