"Elvis is a different type of striker, and also a player who has also played in wide areas."

Last season Manu scored 14 goals in 37 games as he featured for Feyenoord in the Champions League, Europa League and Dutch Eredivisie.

"At 22 years of age, he is of a great age for further development, and he comes to us with a very good pedigree having come through the Feyenoord system," Hughton added.

Manu is the 11th new player to move to Albion since the end of last season.
