Andi Weimann has commented on his move to West Brom after being allowed to leave Bristol City.

Andi Weimann wants to get West Brom to 'where it wants to be' after his departure from Bristol City was confirmed.

The 32-year-old has joined the Baggies on a loan deal until the end of the season which is the same time as when his contract runs out. His move to the Midlands comes after he was left out of the match day squad following the 2-0 defeat to Preston North End at the weekend.

Weimann has been deemed 'fit' by his new boss Carlos Corberan and could make his debut at the weekend against Norwich City. He joins West Brom having played 20 league games where he was able to register one goal and one assist.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to the next few months," said Weimann to the West Brom official club website.

"I know a lot about the club and I’ve been around the area for a while now. 

“I just want to help as much as I can and get this club to where it wants to be.

“I’m definitely a team player, but I also think I’ve got goals in me. Hopefully I can bring goals, assists and experience to the team.”

As Weimann heads to The Hawthorn's, Taylor Gardner-Hickman has had his loan move turned into a a permanent deal. Gardner-Hickman had been at West Brom since 2009 but now ends a 15-year association with the Baggies.

He has been a key figure for City under both Nigel Pearson and his successor Liam Manning. The 22-year-old who can play as a right-back and as a centre midfielder has made 24 appearances in all competitions for City with two assists and one goal. He could now line up against his former club when they do battle on Saturday, March 16.
