West Bromwich Albion have confirmed the signing of central midfielder Quevin Moises Castro.
In a short statement posted on the West Brom website, the club confirmed that they have secured the services of the highly-rated 19-year-old on a two-year deal, with the Baggies holding an option to extend his stay for a further season, after the Portuguese youngster impressed while on trial at Palm Training Ground.
The club went on to state that Quevin is an “energetic and powerful” player, before welcoming the midfielder to Valerien Ismael’s side.
Having spent time with both Arsenal and Chelsea over the course of last season, with the former reported to have been at the “front of the queue” to land the 19-year-old this summer, it is obvious that the youngster is a player with a tremendous amount of potential.
Indeed, the midfielder’s signing kicks off the Valerien Ismael era at West Brom, with the Frenchman being known to favour young, exciting and talented players when putting together his teams, as can be clearly seen from his transfer business while in charge of Barnsley.
Furthermore, with the 45-year-old being left rather short in options in the middle of the park ahead of next season, it would not be a surprising turn of events to see Quevin integrated into the West Brom first team next season, with Ismael once again known for placing his trust in a club’s younger stars.
And, if the youngster’s signing is anything to go by, it would indeed appear to be a fantastic sign of things to come for Baggies fans up and down the country, with fans undoubtedly left buzzing by the prospect of what the future could hold under such a promising young manager who makes ambitious and “exciting” – in the words of Kevin Campbell – signings such as Quevin.
