The 22-year-old has signed a three-year deal with Albion, subject to international clearance, and will be available for selection after the international break.

Manager Chris Hughton commented, "We are really pleased to have brought in another offensive option, and what Elvis will bring us is a different type of striker, and also a player who has also played in the wide areas.

"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, and he has represented Holland from under-16 to under-21 level."
