West Brom are poised to activate the clause to make Old Trafford hero Morgan Amalfitano's loan permanent.

France international midfielder Amalfitano joined for the season from Marseille last month and has made a stunning start with his new club.

The 28-year-old scored a sensational solo goal and set up the winner for Saido Berahino in Saturday's shock away victory over champions Manchester United.

Amalfitano whose younger brother - and fellow midfielder - Romain is on Newcastle's book also scored the previous weekend as the Baggies beat Sunderland 3-0.
