Rickie Lambert leaves Liverpool to join West Bromwich Albion on a two-year deal

Rickie Lambert (33) has left Liverpool after a solitary season at Anfield to join West Bromwich Albion on a two-year deal.

Lambert, who has 11 caps for England, leaves Merseyside for an undisclosed fee, estimated to be around £3m. The forward never established himself at Liverpool, scoring only three times in 36 appearances, and had fallen down the pecking order following the arrivals of strikers Christian Benteke, Divock Origi and Danny Ings in the close season.

"Rickie is a good, strong, solid player who is a great character, good in the dressing-room and good on the pitch," West Brom manager Tony Pulis said.

"We are very pleased to have him on board.

"He's a player of great pedigree and we look forward to integrating him into our squad."
