West Brom have announced the signing of Sunderland midfielder Craig Gardner.

Gardner will officially join Albion on a Bosman transfer on July 1 after passing a medical and putting pen to paper on a three-year deal, plus a further year's option in the club's favour.

Confirming the news in a statement on Tuesday, the Baggies added that they had "beaten off competition from a string of clubs" to secure the services of the 27-year-old.

When he completes his move following the expiry of his Sunderland contract at the end of June, former England Under-21 international Gardner will be with a midlands side for the third time in his career, having previously played for Aston Villa and Birmingham.

West Brom director of football administration Richard Garlick said: "Craig is someone we have followed for a long time and we are delighted to finally get him.

"We tried to bring him here in the January transfer window but it did not work out.

"We have continued to track him and he has expressed a real desire to be at this club following interest from elsewhere.

"He has the flexibility to play in a few positions across the midfield, scores goals, and can slot in at right-back if required.

"I think he will bring a freshness to our midfield area and his character will suit our dressing room.

"We know we have a big summer ahead of us and it is great to get our first signing done so early."
