West Bromwich Albion have completed the signing of Jonathan Bond on a two-year-deal after his release from Reading.
The 25-year-old goalkeeper will add competition for places at The Hawthorns after the club finalised the signing of fellow keeper Sam Johnstone from Manchester United.
Bond, who has had loan spells in the Football League with Watford, Bury and Gillingham signed a two year-deal with the recently relegated side.
With Ben Foster and Boaz Myhill both departing, the Baggies were in need of a couple of shot-stoppers to fill the void ahead of the new season.
Bond spent last season on loan in League One with Peterborough making 45 appearances, registering ten clean sheets in the process.
Bond becomes Darren Moore’s third signing of the summer.
Bond is a good back up to Johnstone. The latter has the Championship experience having been on loan to Preston North End last season.
A good shot stopper who is prone to error from crosses can only get better. ‘Keepers rarely hit their peak before 30-years-old.
So there is room to improve and fight for the number one shirt with Johnstone.
A solid back-up ahead of the Baggies’ Championship campaign
