West Bromwich Albion were today set to unveil two new additions to their squad as manager Tony Mowbray looks to bolster his side as the club pursue ambitions of promotion back to the Premier League.
Czech goalkeeper Michael Danek and South Korean midfielder Kim Do-Hoen are set to join Mowbray at The Hawthorns this afternoon on loan after both completed trials at the Baggies' Walsall Road training ground in recent weeks.
Albion have agreed a deal with Danek's club Viktoria Plzen in the Czech Republic to take the 24-year-old on loan with the view to a permanent move at the end of the season.
The club have agreed personal terms and the move is subject to him passing a medical later this morning.
If the deal with Danek does go ahead, Albion would have the option to either extend his loan for a further six months, or sign him on a permanent basis, in the summer.
If the club opted to extend the loan, they would again have an option to buy him next January.
Albion boss Mowbray has also agreed a deal with Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma to recruit Kim Do-Heon on loan until the end of the season again with a view to a permanent switch.
The move is subject to the 25-year-old midfielder agreeing personal terms, passing a medical and also being granted a work permit at a hearing in London later today.
De-Hoen also spent a few days at Albion last season before flying back to his native country to get married.
Mowbray described yesterday his interest in the two players saying of De-Hoen, who originates from Chumna in South Korea: "I have seen him train for less than two hours and I have never even seen a DVD of him but it is clear he has got talent.
"He has played more than 40 times for his country and also appeared in the World Cup."
Of Danek, who will become the club's second keeper behind Dean Kiely, Mowbray said: "He is from a hotbed of good goal-keeping. Chelsea's Petr Cech is renowned as one of the best in the world so hopefully Michal can get up to that level.
"He is on a journey to see how good he can be and hopefully we can provide the opportunity for him to flourish."
De-Hoen's arrival will bolster Albion's midfield with the departure of Richard Chaplow to Preston North End while Danek comes in following the news that Albion rookie keeper Luke Daniels has been granted a loan move to Scottish Premier League side Motherwell until the end of the season.
