West Brom complete Branislav Ivanovic transfer as ex-Chelsea star, 36, signs one-year deal

WEST BROM have announced the signing of veteran defender Branislav Ivanovic on a one-year deal.

The 36-year-old has joined the Baggies on a free transfer after his contract at Russian side Zenit St Petersburg expired.

SunSport reported last week how the former Chelsea defender was set to make the move to the Hawthorns.

And now the club have confirmed his arrival, with the Serbian international to wear the No 20 shirt.

Ivanovic – who has returned to the Premier League after leaving in February 2017 – has spoke of his joy at linking up with Slaven Bilic.

He told the club's website: "The Premier League is the best league in the world.

“I need to challenge myself and I am ready for the challenge. I am really happy to be back playing in the Premier League.

“I hope I am going to be successful here. 

“I have a lot of ambition and I want to prove a lot of things. I will give everything for the team.”
