6 clean sheets: Why 29-year-old would be a smart signing for West Brom



West Brom are set for a busy summer as they reshape their squad following relegation to the Championship.

There will be several incomings and outgoings for Darren Moore and one area he will need to target is in goal.

Firstly, because Boaz Myhill was released with his contract set to expire, whilst Ben Foster has been linked to former club Watford.

And, one man the Baggies are thought to be interested in is Richard O’Donnell, who is playing in League Two for Northampton Town.

His potential arrival would be as a number two and the 29-year old looks to be a perfect backup option for Moore. He has good experience, having played for Walsall, Wigan and Bristol City, among others, over the years.

Currently at Northampton, he may not have had the best season, as our graphic shows, but he did keep six clean sheets and it’s fair to say he didn’t have the best defence in front of him.

Even though he is at a good age, the chance to jump up two division will surely appeal to the player and he would probably be given a chance in the cup competitions.

Ultimately, Myhill’s departure has left Albion in a tricky position where they need to find a reliable keeper that is happy to be a backup and O’Donnell seems the ideal candidate.
