Albion have signed France under-19 forward Ulrick Eneme Ella from Amiens.

He can play through the middle or out wide and will initially join the club’s under-23 squad.

Under-23s coach Simon Rusk said: “We are delighted to have signed Ulrick, and there is no doubting his talent, having represented his country at junior levels.

“We will work with Ulrick to help him settle in, and to continue his development.

“He is an exciting young player and one who I am looking forward to adding competition to the group of attacking players we already have here at the club.”

Eneme Ella, 19, came through the ranks at Lens and Auxerre and had a stint in Austria at the academies at Salzburg and FC Liefering in 2019.

He was in the senior squad at Amiens last term but did not make an appearance as they battled against the drop.
