Premier League new-boys West Bromwich Albion signed South Korea midfielder Do-heon Kim and England Under-21 striker Luke Moore on Wednesday.

Kim has agreed a two-year contract with an option for a further year's extension. He cost Albion 550,000 pounds (697,000 euros) from Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma after impressing during his spell on loan at the Hawthorns.

The 25-year-old scored in Albion's promotion-clinching win at QPR on the last day of the season and boss Tony Mowbray believes he can make a big impact in the Premier League.

“The four months he has already spent with us will have been a big benefit to him in terms of integrating with the squad and overcoming the language barrier,” Mowbray said.

“I'm now looking forward to working with Kim next season. His loan spell was all about settling into a new club and culture but he's got undoubted talent and he'll have a more significant part to play next season.”

Albion also signed Moore from Aston Villa for three million pounds (3.7 million euros).

Moore agreed a three-year contract with an option for a further year's extension, while the eventual fee could rise to 3.5 million pounds (4.4 million euros) depending on performance-related criteria.

The 22-year-old had been on loan with Mowbray's side since February and made 10 appearances to help Albion clinch the Championship title.
