Sessegnon could make debut against former club

Record-signing Stephane Sessegnon could make his West Brom debut against former club Sunderland this weekend after he was granted a work permit on Wednesday.

The attacking midfielder made a deadline-day move to the Baggies but was unavailable for last weekend's 1-1 draw at Fulham as he awaited the required paperwork.

That has now been granted to free the 29-year-old Benin international, who cost an initial £5.5million, to make his Baggies bow against the club with whom he spent two-and-a-half seasons.
