DONE DEAL! West Brom complete £8m deal for Hull defender James Chester

first_img1 James Chester has completed his move from Hull to West Brom.The Baggies agreed an £8m fee for the defender with the recently-relegated Tigers on Tuesday.Leicester had also been interested in the 26-year-old, who came through the youth ranks at Manchester United, but Chester has now put pen-to-paper on a four-year contract with Tony Pulis’ side.“James did very well for Hull City. I’ve had a good chat with him and he’s the type of player I like,” said Pulis.“He’s young, a strong character, a good defender, he has good feet and he has the Manchester United stamp all over him, just like (Stoke City’s) Ryan Shawcross and Darren Fletcher. They’re wonderful lads and I’m told James is as well.“From the people I spoke to, like Steve Bruce and people in the Welsh party…they speak very highly of him.“Steve especially gave him a great mention and there is no better accolade than Steve Bruce giving a defender a good drum roll.“James is a good player who can play anywhere along the back line and I’m confident he will get better with age.“ James Chester last_img read more
