Their official site says this

Vrijdag 29 augustus 2008 zal bij N.E.C. de boeken ingaan als een enerverende dag. Niet alleen is vandaag bekend geworden dat Dinamo Boekarest de tegenstander wordt in de eerste ronde van het UEFA Cup Toernooi. Tevens werd bekend dat Jonas Olsson, onder voorbehoud van medische keuring, vertrekt naar het Engelse West Bromwich Albion. Vanwege de afhandeling van diverse administratieve zaken zal Olsson tijdens de eerste competitiewedstrijd van N.E.C. tegen De Graafschap, zaterdag 30 augustus om 20:45 uur in het McDOS Goffertstadion, nog wel actief zijn.

which I put into a dodgy translator and got this...

Friday 29 augusts 2008 at N.E.C. the books enter as a enerverende day. It has been not only confessed today that Dinamo Boekarest the antagonist becomes in the first round of of UEFA Cup tournament. Also it was confessed that Jonas leave Olsson, subject to medical testing, to the English West Bromwich Albion. Because of the settlement of several administrative matter Olsson during the first competition game of N.E.C. by the county, Saturday 30 augusts for 20:45 hour in the McDOS Goffertstadion, still active is.

Now, I know it's not great but I think it kinda gives us an idea although, if anyone spakes Dutch, feel free to sort the mess out

At 6ft 4 im sure he will give that extra bit of presence in the box


The Jigsaw is starting to come together, a striker in and we'll be just fine.

As a Dutch speaker and Ajax fan, the NEC website basically says "its known that subject to medical clearance Olsson is leaving for WBA.However, it goes onto say that he will be available for NECīs game against De Graafschap on saturday??? seems a bit of a contradiction.

However, I watch a fair amount of Dutch soccer, but have never heard of this guy. NEC are a decent mid table outfit, probably would give Wolves a decent run out, but like most Dutch teams more technical on the ball. This guy is a bit of an unknown quantity. Donīt think he will be Zuiverloonīs class.

He's had interest from both Everton and Newcastle in the past so he must have something about him.

he's Swedish and he's come through this system. it lacks quality but it's pretty physical and he'll be able to play the English game. no bother.

Jonas Olsson is a good reliable central defender. He has some offensive quality too. Last season he scored a few nice goals.
As an NEC fan I hate to see him go, but wish him success at WBA.
