Wales forward Hal Robson-Kanu has revealed his delight for snubbing the La Liga for a chance to remain in the premier league.
The 27-year-old who was a free agent at the summer had a fantastic Euro 2016 and attracted interest from Atletico Madrid who were keen to land his services but he picked West Brom over the Spanish club.Gabriel Jesus coming to Manchester with a new wardrobe
"There were quite a lot of negotiations that took place, and there were a number of opportunities for me abroad in Spain, Asia, Russia and America," he told FourFourTwo.
"But I had told my agent that I would love to play in the Premier League, so a lot of the interest from other countries got pushed aside. I had a desire to play in the top league in the world.
"I had my phone turned off because it was going mad – I was getting calls left, right and centre – so even if [Atleti coach Diego Simeone] had called me, I'd have missed it.
"Atletico are a massive football club, but my ambition was to play in the Premier League."
Robson-Kanu has made nine appearances from the bench for West Brom this season and he is yet to find the back of the net so far.MORE | Why Iheanacho was ‘mad’ during Chelsea game
