Goalkeeper David Button arrived at The Hawthorns from Brighton & Hove Albion ahead of the Baggies’ upcoming Premier League campaign.

The English shot-stopper agreed a two-year deal, and will provide competition for Albion’s No.1  Sam Johnstone, with Jonathan Bond also agreeing a one-year deal at the Club.

The 31-year-old offers vast experience; having come through the ranks at Tottenham Hotspur he went out on loan on 13 separate occasions between 2008 and 2012 to predominately Football League clubs, notably playing more than 25 games for Shrewsbury Town and Plymouth Argyle.

He moved permanently to Charlton Athletic in 2012 and played five league games in a season before moving to Brentford, where he became their first-choice ‘keeper. He spent three campaigns with the Bees, playing 134 league games.

Button’s next move would be to Fulham, where he played 60 times over the course of two seasons, before moving to Brighton & Hove Albion where he spent two seasons as back-up to Matt Ryan.

Welcome to The Hawthorns, David!
