Dowling “we have followed Karlan’s progress for a long time”.

Shame we hadn’t been following a little longer, perhaps we could have signed him in Jan 19 when we should have, for a fraction!

Decent signing though, particularly with one eye on next season.

I'm delighted that we've finally got this over the line and am excited to see what Karlan can bring to the party. I really hope it's not at the expense of Grosicki leaving though, there are plenty of others I'd prefer to see go elsewhere before him.

From E+S 'But now the two clubs have agreed a permanent transfer that will see Albion pay £15million over the next six years – the length of Grant’s contract.'    So there's no loan element to this at all it seems.

Awesome, happy for us to have signed him!

Looks like that's all our business but we can live in hope maybe for a 2nd loan signing surprise but i highly doubt it!

Got to page 32 before it was sealed, looks as though Huddersfield blinked first judging by the staged payments over six years, but welcome Karlan!

Nine signings by the club, we all know the financial constraints of the club which are beyond The boards control. We got who we wanted, so fair play and well done. Over to you Slaven ....

What have we done?
And what have we become
In this distance from our Mother

I so wish that this was true Gilsey. There are a fair few on here who it seems from their  normal critical postings who can't wait to see him fail.

Good luck Karlan- lots of goals and assists and 8+ level performances galore. You will need to be a super-hero mate!! Most of us ARE behind you

I don't think they did, as it is normal football practice to pay the fee over the length of the contract.

It looks like we blinked as it was reported we valued him at £10-12m.

As usual it is undisclosed whilst Swain spins the £15m figure to his former employers at the express and dingle.

I hope some add ons are involved to take it to £15m, as still gutted we missed out on him when he went for £2m, but the prem swayed him then too.

Just been listening to Daz Hale on WM and he reckons the fee is circa £14m and a 6 year deal.

Got it over the line at last, let's hope he can hit the ground running.

It’s not normal for a fee to be paid over the length of the players contract. It may not be unique but it’s rare from what I gather.

I’ve also never seen anything suggest we tried to get him from Charlton. Huddersfield were already heading down and we were looking good for promotion so who knows if we could have convinced him then. I imagine we probably could have but we had Gayle and J-Rod and no vision!

I am surprised that Huddersfield are prepared to spread the payments over 6 years though, I can understand staged payments over 2 or 3 years. I am also surprised at the length of the contract as well, but got him and thats all that matters I guess.

Brief interview up on the WBA Facebook site. 

Already knows a few of the team, Sawyers, Diangana and Ajayi quite well it seems. He did call Ajayi "Shemi" though. Have we all been pronouncing it wrong?

Another positive note, Bilic seems to have spoken to him!
