Snodgrass signs

Albion have secured the services of Robert Snodgrass from West Ham United for an undisclosed fee.

The 33-year-old midfielder, who has scored 117 goals in 586 senior appearances, this afternoon penned an 18-month contract at The Hawthorns.

The former Scotland international arrives at Albion three years after joining the Hammers from Hull City. He has also represented Aston Villa, Norwich City, Leeds United, Stirling Albion and Livingston.

Snodgrass has played six games for West Ham this season, scoring two goals in Carabao Cup ties with Hull City and Everton.

Head Coach Sam Allardyce said: “I’m absolutely delighted that he has chosen to take up the challenge with us.

“He’ll add Premier League experience and Premier League quality to our side.

“He’s left-footed. We all look for balance. When you get the right balance in the team with left-footed players, they can really produce for you down that left side.

“He tells me he’s played holding midfield, left of a three, wide left and right, so he’s pretty versatile across midfield.

“I’ve heard from many, many people that he is exceptional in the dressing room which is a great bonus on top of his abilities.”
