West Bromwich Albion have added defensive depth with the acquisition of experienced defender Branislav Ivanović.
The Baggies, who lost 3-0 in their Premier League opener against Leicester City, had been keen to add depth at the back.
And they have now signed the 36-year-old on a one-year deal after his departure from Russian side Zenit.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world,” he told the club’s official website.
“I need to challenge myself and I am ready for the challenge. I am really happy to be back playing in the Premier League.
“I hope I am going to be successful here. I have a lot of ambition and I want to prove a lot of things. I will give everything for the team.”
Ivanović will wear the No. 20 jersey at the Hawthorns.
