After joining the Baggies on a four-year deal from Arsenal, the defender said that The Hawthorns was the ‘best’ place for him to come and ply his trade.
“There’s always a decision to make but I went with my gut feeling.
“You hear speculation and stories but when it comes down to it you go with what you think is best.
“I spoke to the manager and he convinced me. I thought this move suited me best.”
“At the moment my priority is to just play,” he said.
“To get that week-in, week-out feeling is my main hunger and my next objective.
West Brom Coach Tony Pulis was also excited by the clubs’s new acquisition, he said “We’ve now got a deal which I think is right for the club and I’m really pleased to add a player of this quality and experience to our group.
“Kieran’s a good age and has made over 200 appearances for Arsenal, represented his country and has Premier League and Champions League experience.
“To add these qualities to our squad is exactly what we’re looking for.”
