Sam Field has joined Queens Park Rangers on a permanent deal after spending the second half of the 2020/21 campaign on loan in the capital.
The midfielder made 45 senior appearances for the Baggies having come through the club’s academy, scoring goals against Newcastle United and Bolton Wanderers.
The 23-year-old played five times for Albion in the early months of the current campaign before making the switch to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in the January transfer window.
Field helped Rangers finish 9th in the Sky Bet Championship, making eight league starts and enjoying a further 11 appearances from the bench.
On departing The Hawthorns, Field said: “I’ve been at the club from the age of seven and it was the easiest decision of my life, as a young West Brom fan, to join all those years ago.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved with the club during that time, from the academy right through to the first team. I’d also like to thank Tony Pulis for being brave enough to give a young 18-year-old the opportunity to make his debut in the Premier League. That’s not an easy thing to do and I will always be grateful for that.
“The club is full of special people who I will really miss, and I wish each and every one of them all the very best in the future.
“Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I’d like to thank the fans who have always been brilliant with me during my time at The Hawthorns. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I look forward to returning to see you all in the future.”
Sporting and technical director, Luke Dowling, added: “Sam is a smashing lad who has dedicated so much of his young life to Albion. I know as a West Brom fan it will be difficult for him to say goodbye, but now he has a great opportunity ahead of him at Queens Park Rangers.
“He’s very popular within the club and I’m sure he’ll be missed by all the staff at the training ground. On behalf of everyone at the club I’d like to thank Sam for his efforts during his time with us and we all hope he goes on to have a successful career.”
