Former Sweden U-21 defender Jonas Olsson has joined English Premier League side West Bromwich Albion from Dutch outfit Nijmegen.

Pending a medical, the 25-year-old centre-back is expected to sign and seal the move over the weekend.

The fee could rise by a further 360,000 pounds in performance-related add-ons. Olsson is renowned for being a tough-tackling player, good in the air and comfortable on the ball.

After moving to Holland from hometown club Landskrona in 2005, he has been a regular in the Nijmegen team.
