Ishmael Miller is now a West Bromwich Albion player.
The young striker (pictured) made his season-long loan deal from Manchester City permanent before the transfer window closed.
The Baggies were under pressure to sign the forward by midnight last night in order to take advantage of an option inserted in the player's original deal. It allowed Albion to sign Miller for £900,000, rising to £1.4 million, if a deal was completed before the close of the window.
Albion have settled personal terms with the 20-year-old and he has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract, with an extra year's option in the club's favour, after passing a medical.
Manager Tony Mowbray said: "I am delighted Ishmael is now our player. He came here as an unknown quantity but you can all see his quality.
"I saw him stuck out on the left wing for Manchester City reserves and thought we could utilise his strength, size, pace and power. From that first day when he came on the scene against Preston and smashed one in he has grown in confidence. But we must also build on that and nurture an emerging talent into a top player."
Miller is injured with a hamstring strain but is likely to return to training next week.
Albion were working on several other transfer targets last night, including winger Graeme Dorrans and midfielder Kim DoHoen, who was awaiting a decision from the Home Office regarding a work permit.
Czech goalkeeper Michal Danek passed a medical and was awaiting international clearance to complete a loan move from Viktoria Plzen.
Mowbray firmed up his interest in the 24-year-old goalkeeper after a short training spell at the club last month.
"I've seen enough of Michal to know he can forge a career for himself here," Mowbray said. "Like every footballer, he is on a journey to see how good he can be. Hopefully, we can create the environment for him to flourish."
As part of the deal, Albion can either extend his loan for a further six months or sign him permanently, in the summer. If the club opt to extend Danek's loan, they will again have an option to buy him in January.
