The Baggies academy goalkeeper has left The Hawthorns on loan to join up with Ryan Lowe’s Pilgrims.

A number of West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the news that Baggies goalkeeper Alex Palmer has joined Plymouth Argyle on loan, as confirmed by West Brom’s official website.

The 22-year-old stopper will spend the 2019-2020 campaign at Home Park as Ryan Lowe’s charges look to make an immediate return to League One following the drop to League Two this summer.

Palmer came through the Albion academy and has gone on to captain their Under-23s side, as well as having several stints on loan at the likes of Kidderminster Harriers, Oldham Athletic and Notts County, plus appearing for England at Under-16 level.

He is expected to compete with the Pilgrims’ 19-year-old prospect Michael Cooper to be first-choice keeper for the upcoming campaign, and goes straight into the squad for their pre-season game against Torquay United at Plainmoor on Tuesday night.

Here is what some West Brom fans on the social media platform made of the announcement:

Plymouth were relegated on the final day of last season and are currently rebuilding their squad under new manager Lowe.
