Goalkeeper Boaz Myhill has signed a new one-year deal with West Brom, just 41 days after being released by the Championship newcomers.

The 35-year-old was let go on 20 June in the wake of the club's relegation from the Premier League.

Myhill trained with the Baggies in pre-season and they were so impressed they offered him a new contract.

"I've had to show humility to come here every day without a contract," Myhill told the club website.

"I'm happy to help in whatever way I can. I've obviously played at this level. In the last two teams I was involved with in the Championship we've finished third, so I know I am a good keeper in this league."

The former Wales international will compete with fellow keepers Sam Johnstone and Jonathan Bond.
