West Brom secure deadline double

Juan Carlos Menseguez
Menseguez played 14 times this season for table topping San Lorenzo

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Mowbray has beefed up his squad with two transfer deadline day signings.

The Baggies secured four-month loan deals for Paris St Germain's Youssouf Mulumbu, 22, and Juan Carlos Menseguez, 24, from Argentine club San Lorenzo.

Both players have been brought in with a view to making permanent moves to the Hawthorns in the summer.

Neither will be eligible for West Brom's FA Cup fourth-round replay against Burnley on Tuesday.

The two new recruits could line up in Saturday's home game against Newcastle along with fellow loan signings Jay Simpson and Marc-Antoine Fortune.


Argentine winger Menseguez previously played in Europe when he joined Wolfsburg on loan during the 2003-04 campaign before sealing a permanent move to the German outfit the following season.

After three seasons in the Bundesliga, Menseguez returned to Argentina to join 10-time Argentine Primera Division champions San Lorenzo in 2007.

Defensive midfielder Mulumbu has been capped seven times by the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mowbray sees him as one for the future.

"(Mulumbu is a) young player with potential...who won't instantly impact on our first team," he told the club's website.
