West Bromwich Albion have confirmed the signing of Rickie Lambert from Liverpool on a two-year deal.
The former England international striker is reported to have cost the Baggies a fee of around £3m.
Lambert was in the Midlands today to undergo a medical and has now put pen to paper at Albion.

Lambert scored just two Premier League goals for Liverpool upon joining from Southampton last season, although 18 of his 25 appearances came as a substitute.
But the 33-year-old proved that he can score in the Premier League by bagging 28 goals in two seasons at St Mary’s following the Saints’ promotion to the top flight.
The veteran bolsters Albion’s forward options ahead of the possible sale of Saido Berahino, who has been strongly linked with a £15m move to Tottenham Hotspur.
