Everton left-back Brendan Galloway has joined West Brom on a season-long loan deal.

He becomes Tony Pulis' second summer signing following the recruitment of QPR winger Matt Phillips for £5.5m last month.

The agreement which sees Galloway switch to The Hawthorns does not include a recall clause, meaning the England youth international will remain there until next summer.

He told West Brom's official website: "I'm delighted. It's a great club and I'm really looking forward to getting started.

"My aims are to play and work hard for the team and help win as many matches as I can. It's all about winning.

"I think for me personally, it's really important to gain more experience. Coming here is the perfect opportunity to do that. I can't wait to get started and put the shirt on."

He made 19 appearances for the Goodison Park side last season, 16 of them as a starter, and was booked three times.

The term, however, he will spend the campaign in the Midlands, with Pulis now keen on adding up to another four players to his group.
