AFC Bournemouth have completed the permanent signing of West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Lee Camp.
Camp initially made the move to Dean Court on 28 day loan in October and went on to impress during his spell on the south coast, which saw his loan spell extended to coincide with the expiry of his contract with West Brom.
The 29 year old shotstopper made five appearances for England at Under 21 level before switching elegance to Northern Ireland where he has won nine international caps.
He has also made almost four hundred first team appearances for the likes of Derby County, Queens Park Rangers, Nottingham Forest and West Brom, while last season he also made three appearances for Norwich City in the Premier League on loan.
He joined West Brom on transfer deadline day signing a rolling monthly contract until January as cover for Ben Foster, but failed to break into the first team during his short spell at the club.
Camp made eleven games for the Cherries during his loan spell, with his best performance coming away to Brighton.
AFC Bournemouth and Camp continued talks following the end of his loan deal and have now announced he has signed a two and a half year contract.
Camp told afcb.co.uk...
"I am pleased everything has been sorted and I am delighted to have signed, Discussions have been ongoing for the past couple of weeks but we have come to a pretty speedy conclusion in the end, so credit must go to the football club for how they have handled it.
"Going into the Brighton game we weren`t a million miles apart. If anything slowed it down over the Christmas period it was the fact we had three games in six days.
"I spoke to the manager at the hotel before the game on New Year`s Eve and I was fairly confident we would all get to where we needed to get to, to make the deal happen.
"Now I have something sorted, I can concentrate on playing football."
It's easy to join AFCB Vital
