Dean Kiely has set out the terms for West Bromwich Albion's bid to find new cover for No1 Scott Carson.

The Baggies player-coach has been heavily involved in identifying a potential No2 goalkeeper since last December.

Kiely told the Birmingham Mail: “I knew in December that if we went up to the Premier League then from a long-term position I’m not a long-term answer.

“Scott’s an international keeper, as I am too, Luke (Daniels) is a developing prospect so we need a No2 of a high standard.

“Going into a Premier League season with Scott, AN Another and myself will be a strong department.

“It’s another senior goalkeeper we are looking for.

“I’ve had this conversation with Dan Ashworth - we don’t want people coming into this football club, coming into my department, for an easy ride or for a nice passage through.

“Whoever comes into my department and under my guidance has to be hungry, full of desire, desperate to play for this football club."
