Myhill pens contract extension

19 July 2016

He is contracted to Albion until summer 2018 after signing a two-year deal in July 2016 following an impressive campaign while established No.1 Ben Foster recovered from injury.

Myhill joined Albion from Hull City in the August following the Club's promotion back to the top flight in 2010, making his debut in a 2-0 Carling Cup win at Leyton Orient.

Foster's arrival on a season-long loan from Birmingham in summer 2011 saw Myhill move in the opposite direction on a season-long loan to City, where he played 46 games, including four Europa League matches.

Myhill on the easy decision to extend contract

20 July 2016

Born in the United States to an American father and Llangollen-born mother, Boaz - full name Glyn Oliver Myhill - has lived in the UK since the age of one. He opted to represent Wales in 2008 - winning 20 caps - having played for England at youth levels.

Myhill started his career at Aston Villa but made his League debut while on loan at Bradford in November 2002, after brief non-appearance loan spells with Stoke and Bristol City.

Further loan spells with Macclesfield and Stockport at the start of 2003/04 followed before he left Villa permanently, without making a senior appearance, joining Third Division Hull in a £50,000 deal in December 2003.

He was named Tigers' Player of The Year in 2005/06 and featured in FourFourTwo magazine's list of the top 50 Football League players.

In total, Myhill made 277 appearances for Hull and had made 298 career appearances before joining the Baggies.

By the end of 2015/16 season, Myhill had made 77 appearances - one as a substitute - for Albion in all competitions but Foster's consistency over 2016/17 meant his understudy was restricted to just two senior appearances.
