Palmer pens new Baggies deal

7 December 2016

After consecutive loan spells at Kidderminster Harriers, the 20-year-old made 11 appearances for the National League side before returning to his parent club.

After injury to Boaz Myhill in November 2016, the young stopper was named on the bench for Albion's clashes with Burnley, Hull City and Watford.

Alex then put pen to paper on a new-and-improved contract at The Hawthorns which keeps him at the Baggies until 2019.

He represented England at U16 level four times, with his most recent appearance coming against France in April 2012.

Alex has been a key part of Albion's Premier League 2 side so far this season and has also been on the first team bench a handful of times - nearly making his first appearance at Leicester.
