West Bromwich Albion have wrapped up the signing of Wales international goalkeeper Boaz Myhill for an undisclosed fee from Hull City.

The 27-year-old has signed a three-year contract at The Hawthorns, where he will challenge Scott Carson for a starting spot.

Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo told his club's official website:"I'm delighted to welcome Boaz to the club.

"He joins us at a good age with a good pedigree, having spent the last two years in the Premier League. I'm sure he will fit nicely into our goalkeeping department.

"We've now got two very good international goalkeepers working under our coach Dean Kiely.

"Competition is vital in all areas of the squad and I'm confident Scott and Boaz will drive each other on."

Myhill had been with the Tigers for nearly seven years, having started his career at Aston Villa, where he failed to make a first-team breakthrough.

He made 277 appearances for City in all competitions, helping them gain promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history in May 2008.
