West Brom have completed a loan move for Tottenham’s Alex Pritchard.

The midfielder underwent a medical at the Baggies on Monday before sealing a switch until the end of the season.

Burnley were keen to take the 22-year-old to Turf Moor but Albion made a late move and he could now make his Barclays Premier League debut at home to Swansea on Tuesday.

“It’s been a hectic few hours – I was close to going elsewhere – but when this came about I didn’t hesitate to come here,” Pritchard told the club’s official site.

“I’m here and excited to get going. I spoke to Tony Pulis and coaches and was told to do my best, work hard and make an impression.

“I’m an attacking player, I like to get on the ball, make things happen and have an eye for goal.

“I can play on the wing or centrally – it’s a dream to play in the Premier League and I hope I get that chance.”

Pritchard has made just one appearance for Tottenham this season, in August, and has struggled with an ankle injury which has left him needing game time.

He has made two substitute outings for the first team since rising through the ranks at White Hart Lane and made his debut on the final day of the 2013-14 season.
