West Brom have completed the signing of Shelton Martis from Hibernian.
West Brom manager Tony Mowbray has returned to former club Hibernian to secure the signature of Shelton Martis for £50,000.
The 24-year-old signed a two-year-deal at The Hawthorns, with the option of a further year in favour of the Championship outfit.
Martis successfully completed a medical on Monday, and Mowbray believes the stopper may well impress in English football.
"He's got huge potential which is why I want to give him the platform to perform," Mowbray told the club's official website.
"He's not the finished article but I believe he could become a very good player for our football club."
Martis comes with a reputation for being a highly-skilled defender, earning himself Hibs' player of the year award in his first season with the club.
The Dutchman becomes Mowbray's first signing of the summer as they prepare for the new season.
