Keeps Bilic happy and gives him options. With Gallagher here, i'm not really sure where he fits in, but we will see. I just hope he doesn't block Gallagher too much.
Agreed or take up too much of the wage bill.

Think Krovinovoc comes in as an option in a 433 either central or wide. If he does play wide he will need to be more direct for sure.

Krov has suggested in interview that Bilic allows him to change shape and formation, including mid game.  He obviously trusts him both tactically and technically and thinks he can have a real impact in the PL.

I wonder if he can change into a 6ft 5ins lightening fast 30 goal a season striker?

Krov imo, is the player that Bilic was referring to when talking about players better suited to the Prem. Could fit in very well with CG’ s energy around him.
I’m glad he’s coming back and I hope he’s closely followed by two strikers (Grant & Balogun for me)

In a ideal world a LB(we looked weak there on Saturday)

Signed according to Madeley

"It was only really a formality after last week's breakthrough, but I understand Filip Krovinovic has now signed to rejoin Albion on a season-long loan from Benfica. Now just awaiting final bits of paperwork and a formal announcement. #WBA"

Good.

I love Krov, very underrated player who will be a big asset this season. He will do a job under appreciated by many but crucial to us. You only have to look at our results when he plays compared to when he doesnt.

Happy to have him back. But to take 8 weeks just to loan him with no option to buy is borderline terrible. Why didn't we just ask for another loan at the start of August. Now we have a player who's going to need 3+4 weeks to get fit. Mind boggling from the hierarchy.

Probably because we wanted to buy him.

Maybe Benfica have been playing hardball and making negotiations difficult, like Huddersfield have done with Grant.

Where do you get the 3-4 weeks to get fit from?

Sometimes problems aren't the clubs fault.

I have concerns about the physical side of Krov at this level , already Pereira is having to take a few more bumps.
Time will tell on this one but at least it keeps Bilic happy.

I actually think he will step up.  Be interesting to see where he fits in.

I do also think he will be an important player for us this season. If nothing else it improves our bench, which was awful on Saturday.

Dave, surely he would have been in training with Benfica?  Same goes for Ivanovic and Gallagher so don’t see why the fitness levels would take four weeks. None of them would have been sitting on their ass’s I’m sure.

Presume Filip will have to self isolate for two weeks coming from Portugal unless there are special arrangements for Premier League footballers and, WE ARE PREMIER LEAGUE !!!!

A lot of people reporting it was basically done today. Good to get this one over the line. Get Grant in and I think its been a good window, wish it was done a bit earlier but oh well.

It seems that everybody, everyone and everything says that it is done. Untill I see him in our shirt, I won't believe it.

There's possibly a quarantine issue until we can get him into the testing regime even regarding photoshoots etc.??

As I said before, Felip Krovinovic is probably self-isolating and is sat in one of those automatic photo booths wearing a Baggies shirt. Might not see him for a fortnight.
