West Brom have signed midfielder Pele from Championship rivals Southampton in a 1m deal.

The 29-year-old, who can also play in defence, has joined on a two-year deal with an option for a further 12 months.

"We're delighted to sign a player who caught our eye last season," said Baggies boss Tony Mowbray. "He will bring experience and quality.

"His athleticism and passing ablity will increase competition for places," Mowbray told the club website.

Pele joined the Saints in July 2006 from Portuguese side Belenenses and the Portugal-born player made 44 appearances for the club last season.
