Manchester: Darren Fletcher's 15-year Manchester United career came to an end as West Bromwich Albion announced that they had signed him on a free transfer.
The 31-year-old midfielder first joined United as a schoolboy and made 342 appearances for the club, scoring 24 goals. But after falling our of favour under new United manager Louis van Gaal, he signed for West Brom on a two-and-a-half-year contract with an option for a further year.
"I've spent my career at United and it's all I've ever known," he said. "But I felt it was the right time to move and I'm not sentimental about doing that — I have great memories obviously, but I'm now a West Brom player and I cannot wait to get going."
