Steven Reid is looking to go on and finish his career with West Brom having penned a permanent deal with the club.
The 29-year-old, who also attracted the interest of Celtic, has signed a two-year contract with the option of a further 12 months in Albion' s favour after being released by Blackburn.
Having enjoyed his time on loan at The Hawthorns over the final two months of this season, he is looking for a long-lasting relationship with the Black Country outfit.
"I' m probably seeing this as my last move now and hopefully I can see it through to my mid-30s or whatever happens," he told West Brom' s official website. "I' m not looking at this as a stepping stone. This is me for the foreseeable future and I' m glad to be a part of it."
Speaking of his move to the midlands ahead of Celtic, Reid added: "It was a massive decision. Everyone knows my connection with Ireland and the connection with Celtic. It has always been a club I' ve admired.
"The bottom line is it is Premier League football. It was a tough decision to make but the time I spent here at the end of last season I loved and I just want to continue that again next season."
