Kirkland completes West Brom move
Chris Kirkland
Kirkland suffered a string of injuries at Liverpool
Liverpool goalkeeper Chris Kirkland has completed his loan move to West Brom after coming through a two-week trial.

Kirkland, 24, joined Liverpool from Coventry four years ago for 6m, but injuries and Jerzy Dudek's form limited his first-team opportunities.

During his year-long loan Kirkland will have two other goalkeeping rivals - Russell Hoult and Tomasz Kuszczak.

"Chris got stiff competition here," West Brom assistant boss Nigel Pearson told the Albion website.

Pearson added: "I'm delighted for him because he's had a tough time with injuries and I know what that can be like.

"He's desperate for a run of games but he'll have to fight hard to get them."

Kirkland's chances at Liverpool suffered a further setback with the arrivals of Scott Carson and Jose `Pepe' Reina.
