Arsenal's Vela joins West Brom on loan

Arsenal striker Carlos Vela has joined struggling English Premier League side West Brom on loan until the end of the season.
The 21-year-old Mexico forward has been restricted to eight substitute appearances in the league and Champions League this season, scoring three goals. He has been at the bottom of the pecking order among the team's four strikers.
Vela officially joined Arsenal on Jan. 1, 2008, but didn't begin playing for the team until the following season while he sorted out his work visa.
Vela had a series of injuries last season and has been hoping for more playing time. Arsenal announced the loan deal on its website late Friday.
