Gardner over the moon with Baggies move

Midfielder Craig Gardner was "praying" for his move to West Brom to be secured.

It's obviously a pleasure, it's a great club.

I've got a lot of friends here and I'm just buzzing that I'm back at home in the midlands where I enjoy my football the most and feel I play my best football.

I was linked with West Brom previously and I was just praying it happened this time. Now eventually it has happened so I'm over the moon.

People say you have to be happy at home to be happy in your job - and when you've got your friends and family around you encouraging and supporting you, then that's when you'll play your best football.

– West Brom midfielder Craig Gardner
