West Brom manager Carlos Corberan is delighted to have him in his ranks for the remainder of the campaign.
‘I have the highest respect for a player who has proven himself at the top level for as long as Marc,’ said the Spaniard.
‘To have won the Premier League and the FA Cup, and to have played so many games, is testament to a top professional who is determined to win football matches.
‘Marc will bring vast experience to the squad, but he is here to make us more competitive, and I am confident he brings the quality we will need as we look to continually improve.’
Albrighton added: ‘I’ve never had an experience of fighting for promotion before and that’s something that excites me.
‘I’ve really enjoyed my time at Leicester and it’s a fantastic club, but I’ve gone through a spell where I’ve not been playing regular football.
‘It’s not something that I’ve really been able to deal with well and I felt like I needed a fresh, new challenge. I want to come in here and show people that I can still play at a good level. It’s exciting for me.
‘I have kids that want to come and watch me play on a Saturday afternoon and they haven’t been able to do that recently. I’d love to get back out there and play as much as I can for them. I also have some friends who are big Albion fans who’ll be thrilled when this news gets released.’
The Baggies sit 10th in the Championship, just four points behind third-placed Middlesbrough.
