Darren Fletcher has joined West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer after being released by Manchester United.
The 31-year-old was close to signing for West Ham earlier in the transfer window but negotiations fell through before Fletcher eventually did complete his exit from the club.
Having signed schoolboy forms with Man United back in 2000, Fletcher has been at the club ever since and he leaves having made 342 appearances in all competitions.
Loved by Man United fans for his tenacious style of play, Fletcher became an integral part of one of Man United’s most successful ever periods and played a key role under Sir Alex Ferguson.
It’s very sad to see one of Man United’s longest serving players leave the club but he was granted a free transfer as a gesture of good will from the club in order for him to secure a better deal from West Brom.
Over the course of the week, we’ll be bringing you stories, features and anecdotes from fans and journalists taking a look back at some of the best bits from Fletcher’s career.
Good luck at West Brom. Thank you Fletch.
