West Bromich Albion have agreed a deal with West Ham United to take striker Frank Nouble on an initial one-month loan.

The 18-year-old will complete his move when the emergency loan window reopens on Tuesday, although he will not be available for Saturday's FA Cup clash at Reading due to his earlier involvement in this season's competition with the Hammers.

Nouble, who arrived at West Ham from Chelsea last summer for an undisclosed fee, will be known to Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo, and his close links with West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola are believed to have made the Black Country club the frontrunners in signing the England Under 19 forward.

"Frank is an exciting, young player who I am delighted to welcome to the club," Di Matteo told West Brom's official website.

"He can play in any of the three forward positions - down the middle, wide left or wide right - and we hope the next month is a fruitful one for the club and Frank.

"His main attributes are that he's powerful, quick and good on the ball but we mustn't forget he is still very young."

Nouble's opportunities with the Hammers have become somewhat limited in the last week with the club opting for experience up top by signing Benni McCarthy, Ilan and Mido.
