West Brom have continued to strengthen the club, even outside of the transfer window.
And it’s another addition to their goalkeeping ranks – a return of someone they know well.
Last week, Ali Al-Habsi joined the club on a contract until the end of the season to provide backup to both Sam Johnstone and Jonathan Bond.
Now their former shot-stopper Boaz Myhill has returned to the Hawthorns as he makes the first transition into a potential coaching career.

Myhill’s affiliation with the West Brom stretches back nearly ten years after he signed from Hull City back in 2010 just as the Baggies were promoted to the Premier League.
Though, he was primarily a backup option throughout his spell in the west Midlands, having made just a total of 85 appearances for the club.
Several fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the appointment.
One supporter lauded the decision by calling it an ‘excellent appointment,’ which was echoed by a range of other superlatives including ‘brilliant’ and ‘great.’
Another member of the Baggies faithful claimed the goalkeepers at the club were in good hands whilst one more said Myhill was ‘the GOAT.’
Here’s the best of the reaction:
Excellent appointment ?⚪️??

Great appointment. After losing so much experience I reckon we needed some ex players involved as role models. Appleton and now myhill shows good appointments and that we can move on. Change can be a good thing! Few more to go but I am encouraged
