Ideye scored a late header in Friday's 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Ideye was in the right place at the right time as the ball hit him on the back of the head and dribbled into the net in the 87th minute. It was the £10 million man's first league goal for the club after he came off the bench as a 67th minute replacement for Varela.

Ideye (ankle) has trained all week and should return for Monday's game against Manchester United, manager Alan Irvine told the official club website.

Ideye (ankle) has trained all week and manager Alan Irvine sounded confident that the striker will be fit enough to return. Ideye is West Brom's record signing after arriving in the summer and is yet to score a Premier League goal. His path back into the team is blocked by the in-form Saido Berahino and fantasy managers will only get the chance for points off the bench from the Nigerian forward.

Ideye (ankle) will miss Saturday's trip to Liverpool, manager Alan Irvine told the Birmingham Mail.

Ideye is yet to recover from an injury that he picked up when scoring his first goal for the club against Hull in the Capital One Cup. He should return against Manchester United after the upcoming international break and won't start given Saido Berahino's current rich vein of form.

Ideye (knock) is fit for Saturday's game against Burnley, according to the striker's Twitter account.

Ideye (knock) injured himself in the process of scoring his first goal for West Brom in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Hull City. Ideye was left out of last weekend's trip to Tottenham and will find it hard to score this weekend against a stern Burnley defence that is looking for a fourth clean sheet on the trot.

Ideye started his first ever Premier League game on Saturday against Swansea.

Ideye was largely ineffective during the 3-0 defeat after being chosen by manager Alan Irvine to lead the line. The Nigerian striker is the club’s record signing at £10 million and manager Irvine will persist with him as the focal point of the West Brom attack for the time being. Ideye scored five league goals in 19 games for Dynamo Kiev last season and his need to adapt to the Premier League makes him a last resort for fantasy managers.

Ideye made his debut as a substitute in the goal-less draw at Southampton on Saturday.

Ideye replaced Victor Anichebe in the 52nd minute for his first appearance since arriving for a club record £10 million from Dynamo Kiev in the summer. The striker had the best chance of the game when Saints keeper Fraser Forster denied him. Ideye’s status as an under-the-radar striker at West Bromwich Albion makes him an attractive option for frugal fantasy owners.

Ideye (fitness) looks set to continue on the bench for this Saturday’s game at Southampton after being used in Monday’s Under-21 game. “He's getting closer but he definitely needed the game. Understandably he's not where the rest of the boys are at the moment,” manager Alan Irvine told the club website.

Ideye is a club-record signing from Dynamo Kiev and scored 74 goals in 182 appearances for the Ukrainian side. The striker will get ample opportunity to prove his worth and is an interesting option for fantasy owners looking for a bargain.

Ideye signed a three-year contract with West Brom on Friday after transferring from Dynamo Kiev on a club-record transfer free, the club's official web site reports.

Ideye will look to bolster the stagnant West Brom attack, as he's scored 74 goals in 182 appearances for Kiev. With a record-fee on his resume, Ideye will likely get every opportunity to show what he can do, making him a rather interesting low-cost fantasy option.
