'I wasn't here during his first spell at the club, but I know he was very well thought of by all concerned, including the club's supporters.

'He's achieved a great deal since he left, including winning a Premier League title, and his experience at this level will be hugely beneficial to us.

'Albion fans will know all about him: he's a physical striker that holds the ball up well, and he's capable of scoring goals, which we he hope he will continue back here.'
