West Brom completed the £3million signing of Rickie Lambert from Liverpool on a two-year deal,
Rickie Lambert had a successful medical at the club on Friday.
The 33-year-old, who managed just three goals in 36 games for the Reds last season, had also been linked with Leicester and Tottenham, but Tony Pulis’ side have won the race to sign him.
Following the announcement by West Brom, it was revealed that Lambert has been included in the Baggies squad to face Bristol Rovers in a pre-season friendly on Friday night, which could see him line up against a former club on his debut.
His move to Liverpool 13 months ago was touted as a dream return for a player rejected by the club’s academy, but it quickly became apparent things were not going to work out and Lambert turned down a move to West Brom’s midlands rivals Aston Villa in January after the Reds accepted he was no longer part of manager Brendan Rodgers’ plans.
The Anfield club had wanted to recoup as much of last summer’s £4.5m outlay to Southampton as possible, but it is understood the two clubs have agreed a deal worth around £3m for the veteran frontman.
