West Brom Sporting & Technical Director Richard Garlick said: “We began talking to Shane about a new contract last Spring and, during the ongoing negotiations, we made him two offers which would have significantly increased his salary.

“However, despite our best endeavours, Shane has declined to sign a new contract. “Shane effectively only has 18 months left on his deal and with him no closer to accepting our terms and then Hull making an acceptable offer, we felt it was in the club’s best interests to accept the bid.”
