West Bromwich Albion have signed Northern Ireland international goalkeeper Lee Camp to fill the void left by Ben Foster's injury.

Former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Camp has signed a rolling monthly contract until January after Foster was ruled out for three months by a broken bone in his foot.

The free agent has made 349 league appearances in spells at Derby, Burton, QPR, Nottingham Forest and Norwich, and also has nine caps for his country.

West Brom goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely welcomed the addition of Camp, who played three times in the Barclays Premier League for Norwich last season.

“Lee will bring experience and authority to the goalkeeping department. We have acted quickly in the wake of Ben’s injury and made a really good signing," he said.

“Lee comes with a strong pedigree, having played at a high level both domestically and internationally. He ticked a lot of the boxes we required when we began the search for another 'keeper.”
