Premier League side West Brom remain with the option to sign Hegazi, 26, permanently at the end of the loan period.

“He’s a good addition. He’s got good pedigree and played for some good clubs,”  Baggies boss Tony Pulis revealed.

“If he does well, we’ve already agreed a final deal. It’s really, really good for us.”

Hegazi has been named on the Egypt national team recently for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations where the nation finished second overall.
