Button's last appearance in an Albion shirt came in a 1-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in the Emirates FA Cup back in January.

Goalkeeper David Button has completed a permanent move to West Bromwich Albion, for an undisclosed fee.

The 31-year-old keeper heads to the Hawthorns, and ends a two-year spell as back-up to Albion keeper Mat Ryan.

Button made a total of 11 appearances during his two years at the Amex.

Head coach Graham Potter commented, “We have a lot of competition for the position, and this represents an excellent opportunity for David and the club.

“He is a good professional and has been great to work with over the past year or so; I would like to wish him well for the future and thank him on behalf of the club.”

Button began his career with Spurs, and after 13 separate loan spells with 11 different clubs, he moved to Charlton Athletic in 2012.

It was a year later, and a move to Brentford that he began to feature regularly, playing more than 100 games for the Bees.

He moved to Fulham in 2016, where he played 60 times, helping the club to promotion in 2018, ahead of a move to the Albion.

Button made a total of 11 appearances for Albion, in the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
