'I’m absolutely delighted we have got him' - Moore

DARREN Moore believes Kyle Bartley can prove a major acquisition for Albion as the Club sets about regaining Premier League status.

The Head Coach has added the towering defender to his options for the back-line, a signing which follows the recruitment of keeper Sam Johnstone. 

“I’ve been aware of Kyle for a long time and kept my eye on his career as it has graduated - and I’m absolutely delighted we have got him,” says Darren.

“I think this lad has got great presence and can also be a very adaptable defender. I believe he can play in different positions which gives me greater options in terms of how we might set up.

“He has presence and pace and good qualities. And I also think he has his best football ahead of him.

“I am really looking forward to working with him and I think he is looking forward to working with me. He is certainly excited to join us and relishing the chance of a new start.

“We will get the chance to give him a good week’s work with the boys in training with a view to his featuring at Aberdeen on Friday night.”
