WEST BROMWICH, England – New West Bromwich Albion coach Steve Clarke has made Ben Foster his first signing for the Premier League club.

West Brom says the 29-year-old goalkeeper joined on a three-year contract with a possible two-year extension.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Clarke hailed Foster's “exceptional” performances last season, and said the goal keeper has been a priority signing for the club.

Foster's impressive form contributed to West Brom's best-ever 10th place finish in the Premier League.

Foster played at the Hawthorns on loan from Birmingham City last season. The former England international previously played for Manchester United. – Sapa-AP
