Albion have resigned Romaine Sawyers six years after he left The Hawthorns. 

The 27-year-old has penned a three-year contract after signing from Brentford in a £3m deal. 

It marks a full circle return for Romaine who left Albion back in 2013 when he signed for neighbours Walsall after progressing through the ranks at The Hawthorns. 

After making more than 100 appearnces for the Saddlers he joined Brentford in 2016. After impressing at Griffin Park he has now decided to return home and rejoin his boyhood club. 

"I didn’t think I would ever return, but it has been something I have always wanted," he said. 

"As a young boy I always wanted to play for every age group at the Club and I did that up until first-team level. That’s something that has always bugged me.

"When the opportunity came up to return, I had to take it.

"It’s massive for me to be back. There is no other team that means as much to me as West Bromwich Albion. Everyone who knows me, knows that.

"I think this is unfinished business for both me and the Club.

"The Club missed out on the Premier League last year and they want to be back there which coincides with where I want to be."
