West Brom snap up defender Davies

West Brom have signed highly-rated Luton defender Curtis Davies for 3m.

The 3m fee for Davies, 20, who has signed a four-year deal, is a record for West Brom and was the third biggest domestic move on deadline day.

West Brom boss Bryan Robson told the club's website: "I believe he's got a really good future in the game.

"Curtis is one of the most outstanding young centre halves I've seen for some time," added Robson.

Davies arrival takes Albion's summer spending to 9m and follows the arrival of Nathan Ellington, Darren Carter, Diomansy Kamara, Steve Watson and on-loan Chris Kirkland.

The 6ft 2in Davies made 62 appearances for Luton scoring two goals, his last coming on Monday in the 2-1 win over Millwall.

He joined the club as a 16-year-old trialist and made his debut two years later.
