Rickie Lambert completes move to West Brom – and scores on debut

Rickie Lambert has completed a move to West Bromwich Albion - signing a 2 year deal.

The 33 year old was surplus to Brendan Rodgers requirements, a year after he was brought to Anfield for £4M.

West Brom are believed to have paid around £2.5M for the player.

Lambert has gone straight into tonight's squad for West Brom's friendly against Bristol Rovers.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis said:

"Rickie is a good, strong, solid player who is a great character, good in the dressing room and good on the pitch.

"We are very pleased to have him on board."

Rickie made 36 appearances for Liverpool scoring 3 times, however many of these appearances were as a very late substitute.  He started just 12 times for the reds.

Rickie Lambert's departure leaves the number 9 shirt vacant, with Christian Benteke set to take it for the 2015-16 season.

UPDATE: Rickie scored 23 minutes into his debut for West Brom today
