"We are very excited about him coming in,” said assistant boss Byrne.
"The manager (Grant McCann) has been working hard behind the scenes to get it over the line.”
Faal stands at 6ft 5ins and described himself as a ‘target man’ during an interview with the club.
He will compete with Joe Ironside and George Miller for a starting spot at Rovers.
"I think he will excite the fans with how he plays,” said Byrne.
"He’s got goals in him, which is a big, big factor for the manager.”
Faal has also been a regular scorer at youth and reserve level for West Brom, having joined the club aged 16.
"He’s dynamic, he’s unpredictable and he can score a various range of goals,” said Byrne.
"It’s going to be a really good signing for us. It brings another dynamic to the team and a variation we can use to our advantage.
"Although he’s 6ft 5 he’s very good on the deck.”
Faal’s arrival is likely to push transfer-listed pair Reo Griffiths and Caolan Lavery further down the pecking order at the Eco-Power Stadium.
