Albion striker Florin Andone has joined Turkish champions Galatasaray on a season-long loan for an undisclosed fee.

The club has a January recall option as part of the loan agreement for the Romania international.

Head coach Graham Potter said: “We feel this loan to Galatasaray gives Florin the opportunity to go and play regularly, which he’s found difficult here.

“He also has the prospect of Champions League football. We wish Florin well for the season ahead, we have the option of a recall in January and we will closely monitor his progress.”

Andone, capped 26 times by Romania, is due to link up with his national squad for qualifiers against Spain and Malta this week.

He joined Albion from Deportivo La Coruna in July 2018, having made 69 appearances across two seasons, scoring 18 goals and has also represented CD Castellon, Villarreal, Atletico Baleares (loan) and Cordoba during his time in Spain.

The 26-year-old striker scored his first goals for the club in the back-to-back wins over Huddersfield Town and Crystal Palace in December, before scoring in the reverse fixture against the Terriers in March.
