We recently wrote an article, which revealed that West Bromwich Albion were set to sign Robert Snodgrass from West Ham, and today that deal has been finalised.
Snodgrass joins the Baggies for an undisclosed fee, and has an 18 month contract with the club.
Despite being 33 years of age, the Scottish midfielder has plenty of ability to boost West Brom’s fight for survival. He has bags of experience and brings a new threat from set pieces.
West Brom made the announcement on their Twitter account, earlier today:
Our new recruit’s @premierleague record.

Snodgrass was popular with the West Ham support and appeared emotional when his departure was in the offing. Indeed, he retweeted a video of his West Ham goals and posted a caption stating “Last thing I needed to see at this time.”

He also retweeted this post from a West Ham fan.
Really sad to see Snoddy depart.
A man who always brightened up the room, was genuinely interested in us both as a media team and as people, gave us some fantastic moments and most definitely understands what it is to be West Ham United.
