The deal has been on the cards for a few days now and the former West Brom ‘keeper spoke of his delight at the move.

He said: “I’m over the moon to join the club and for sorting the whole move out. Now the focus is to get my head down and start working hard in time for the new season.

“Coming into a squad with a new look to it is exciting. There are plenty of players coming in at the moment, but there are also a number of guys here who have been at the club for a long time, so I’m sure they’ll help lads like myself settle in, and right now I can’t wait to start getting involved.

“Everyone talks about how tough the league is and they’re right, you have to be at your best if you’re going to come out on top and with a lot of games to play it’s going to be really demanding on us this year.”
