West Brom sign Porto's Cech

West Bromwich Albion signed Slovakia left-back Marek Cech from Porto for £1.4 million (1.7 million euros) on Tuesday.

Cech agreed a three-year contract with the newly-promoted Premier League side before linking up with Tony Mowbray's side on their pre-season tour to Holland and Germany.

The 25-year-old defender, who has made 29 senior appearances for his country, has an impressive pedigree after helping Porto win the Portuguese league for the last three seasons.
