West Brom have completed the signing of defender Kyle Bartley from Swansea.

The 27-year-old joins on a three-year deal for around £4million to become the Baggies' second signing of the summer.

He told the club's official site: "After speaking with Darren (Moore, boss) I knew this was the place I wanted to 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."

Leicester are closing in on defender Jonny Evans after triggering the £3million release clause in his West Brom contract, according to reports.

Evans had been linked with a possible move to Arsenal but, following West Brom's relegation from the Premier League, the Foxes appear in pole position to sign the Northern Ireland international.

The 30-year-old Belfast-born central defender, who has played 70 times for his country, joined the Baggies from Manchester United in 2015.

West Brom have confirmed the appointment of Darren Moore as the club's new head coach.

The 44-year-old former Albion defender has landed the job on an "improved and extended contract" having been given the role on a temporary basis following Alan Pardew's dismissal at the start of April.

Moore's impressive spell as caretaker boss saw him steer West Brom to three wins - including victories against Manchester United and Tottenham - and two draws in six Premier League matches, staving off relegation until the last week of the season and restoring some pride after a miserable campaign both on and off the pitch.
