Goalkeeping coach Neil Cutler is delighted with his move to West Brom.
He told the Express & Star: "Ben has been fantastic in terms of listening and learning and wanting to understand, and it's already working I think.
“His starting position in relation to the ball is far better, he's taking more crosses, which is what we worked on.
“His distribution is getting better all the time. We're just working on little aspects of his game that are going to help.
“He's such a front-foot reactive goalkeeper that sometimes he gets dragged a little bit down the line, we have to hold him back a little bit.
“He's really buying into it. He's such a good down-to-earth open character that you can approach it any way you like.
“I've known him a long time. When he first joined Stoke from Racing Club Warwick a long time ago I was at Stoke.
“He knows my character as well, he knows what I like. It's a two-way thing."
