The Spaniard has made a number of outstanding saves, including this one against Tottenham Hotspur to deny Carlos Vinicius.

“Robert has already shown what an exciting prospect he is, with a great attitude and mentality. He has adjusted quickly to the Premier League, and we believe he has all the attributes to develop into a top-class goalkeeper.

"Credit is also due to Ben Roberts and Casper Ankergren, the club's goalkeeping coaches, who, along with a number of staff in our academy, have helped Rob and guided him through his development. We are looking forward to working with Rob and helping him continue with his development.”

Sanchez joined the club from Levante in 2013 and played in Albion's age group teams as well as having loan spells with Forest Green Rovers and Rochdale.
