Uruguay international defender Diego Lugano has joined West Bromwich Albion following two years with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

In a brief statement on their website, PSG revealed that Lugano had been transferred to The Hawthorns and thanked the player "for his professionalism over the length of his contract."

However, they did not give any further details as to the terms of the deal.

Lugano, 32, joined PSG from Turkish giants Fenerbahce in the summer of 2011 but has made just 12 league appearances for the club in two years.

The captain of Uruguay's triumphant 2011 Copa America campaign, Lugano has spent the last campaign on loan in Spain with Malaga.
