Ugo Ehiogu's career has come full circle with the expected completion of his move from Middlesbrough to West Bromwich Albion today.
The Baggies first gave the Hackney-born Ehiogu his chance in professional football when he joined them as a 17-year-old in 1989. Now, 16 years later, central defender Ehiogu is poised to return to The Hawthorns.
The 33-year-old is out of contract in the summer and has agreed personal terms with the manager, Bryan Robson, who said: "We're so far down the line with big Ugo that there are only a few minor details to try and tie up. I was hoping to have him in on Monday but hopefully by tomorrow he'll be a West Brom player.
"He's a big strong defender who has vast experience of Premiership football. I think Ugo will be good for Curtis Davies and Neil Clement with the experience he has. He is also a good communicator on the pitch."Reuse content
