Report: West Brom interested in signing ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones

Brad Jones

West Brom have been linked with making a move for the former Liverpool stopper.

As reported by the Herald, the Baggies are reportedly keen on securing a deal for Brad Jones, who is a free transfer this summer.

Tony Pulis is in the market for a new goalkeeper to bring to the Hawthorns, with the long-term injury to Ben Foster meaning Boaz Myhill is the only senior stopper in his squad.

Crystal Palace ‘keeper Wayne Hennessey has already been linked with a transfer to link up with Pulis, who signed him for the Eagles, but the latest report claims interest in Jones, who fulfils the role of experienced goalkeeper that Pulis wants.

The Australian stopper is out-of-contract this summer, with his Liverpool deal not being renewed, and the 33-year-old exits Anfield with just 25 appearances appearances to his name in four years.

The four-capped international started his career at Middlesbrough, making 73 appearances for Boro, as well as spending various loan spells away from the club.

Despite being a free transfer, he is far from the quality needed to play in the Premier League, and Hennessey represents the far better option if Pulis is looking for a player to feature for the Baggies.
