Joining after Jonas Olsson, Gareth McAuley quickly became a fan favourite once their partnership blossomed. Signing in 2011 from Ipswich Town, the centre-back first appeared for Albion in the Premier League against Fulham, playing the full 90 minutes.

His final game in the Premier League for the Baggies was against Southampton in 2018, in which McAuley donned the captain’s armband for the final time.

He left once his contract expired and joined Rangers in Scotland before retiring in 2019, aged 39.

Ben Foster won the League Cup three times and was capped multiple times for England prior to joining West Brom on a loan deal from Birmingham City in 2011, trading places with Boaz Myhill.

He conceded two against former club Man United on his debut but the 37 appearances in his first season gave the Baggies more than enough reason to to sign him permanently in 2012.

Foster joined for £4m on a permanent contract and stayed at The Hawthorns for another six years.

He went on to appear for England at the 2014 Brazil World Cup, becoming the first Albion player to represent England at a World Cup since Jeff Astle in 1970.

Foster played his final game for the Baggies in the Premier League in 2018 in a 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, before moving to Watford.

Ben Foster was relegated alongside Craig Dawson at Watford in the 2019/20 season.
