DONE DEAL: West Brom in double move for defender and keeper

Championship West Brom have signed Swansea defender Kyle Bartley for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal, with keeper Jonathan Bond joining on a free transfer.

"He's (Bartley) got great presence about him and I am looking forward to working with him," head coach Darren Moore said.

Bartley told the club website: "After speaking with Darren I knew this was the place I wanted to be be.

"He let me know his ideas for the season and the next few years, his ambitions for the club and he told me about the fan base and the facilities. I'm hoping to be involved quickly."

Former England Under-21 international Bond has agreed a two-year contract.

"This is a Premier League club and that's what we've got to concentrate on - getting ourselves back up there," Bond said.
