JAKE Livermore's signing from Hull City for an undisclosed fee in January 2017 proved a springboard back to the England team.
Livermore impressed from the 'get-go' of his Baggies career, making his debut just in the 2-0 win home over Sunderland and within a couple of months was back in the international fold.
England manager Gareth Southgate called up Livermore who when he started in the friendly against Germany in March became the first Albion outfield player to wear the Three Lions since Steve Hunt in 1984.
Born in Enfield in 1989 Livermore joined local club Tottenham Hotspur as a 16-year-old in 2006.
Livermore returned from a successful loan spell at Peterborough United to make his Spurs debut as a late substitute in their 2-1 win at Stoke City in March 2010.
His form with Spurs earned him a call-up to Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the friendly against Italy in August 2012 in Bern, Switzerland. Livermore featured as a 69th-minute substitute as the Three Lions recorded a 2-1 victory.
The 27-year-old made 58 appearances in six years at White Hart Lane before joining Hull City for a then club-record fee in 2014.
The versatile midfielder suffered FA Cup final disappointment in 2014 when the Tigers were beaten 3-2 by Arsenal. In reaching the final Hull were entered in the following season’s Europa League but fell to a First Playoff Round defeat by Lokeren of Belgium.
Livermore featured on 37 occasions as Hull were promoted back to the top flight, via the play-offs, last term.
He was an ever-present for the Humberside club, playing as both a centre-half and a central midfielder, before his switch to Albion.
