Nicky Shorey makes a switch to West Brom

West Brom have signed former England full-back Nicky Shorey.

The 29-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Baggies, who have the option of a further year, after moving from Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee.

Meanwhile, Stoke winger Liam Lawrence expects to complete his move to Celtic when Aiden McGeady signs for Spartak Moscow this week.

McGeady's imminent transfer to the Russian club will give Hoops' boss Neil Lennon an extra £9.5million to continue rebuilding his squad and some of that money will be used to bring long-time target Lawrence to Parkhead.

“Well, that's what I've been told,” said the Republic of Ireland international last night.

“I want a new challenge.”
