Kidderminster Harriers have re-signed young goalkeeper Alex Palmer on loan from Premier League side West Bromwich Albion for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old penned a new and improved contract at The Hawthorns a couple of weeks ago.

The highly-regarded has penned fresh terms until June 2019, with a further twelve-month option in the club’s favour.

Palmer is yet to make a first-team outing but has appeared on the bench in the last three Premier League matches as cover for the injured Boaz Myhill.

In total, Palmer has been an unused substitute in six matches, five of which in the league, dating back to May 2015.

And the Baggies stopper, who spent six months on loan at Kidderminster in 2015/16, expressed his delight at putting pen-to-paper: “It’s great to finally get the deal sorted so I can focus on my football,” he said. “I want to keep improving and keep moving up the chain, whether that means going out on loan or being on the bench.

“I just have to show I’m good enough and can be trusted to step in when I’m needed”.
