Keeper seals Albion deal

Jonathan Bond has become the second goalkeeper to join Albion this season. 

The 25-year-old was released by Reading in the summer and joins the club on a free transfer, signing a two-year contract at The Hawthorns. 

Bond, who initially featured for Wales at youth level, switched to England and has been capped Under-20 and Under-21 level. 

“This is a Premier League club and that’s what we’ve got to concentrate on - getting ourselves back up there,” said the stopper.

“The facilities are great, the people are great. The Championship is a tough league but I believe it’s an exciting season ahead.”
