Chris Baird featured in Tony Pulis' debut 1-0 victory over Hull City in Week 21 of Premier League action.
Baird, a seldom-used reserve under Alan Irvine, started Tony Pulis' first match as West Brom manager despite a healthy Sebastien Pocognoli being available and healthy on the bench. Whether this was just a calculated rotation for the visit of a relatively weak opponent or a change in direction under a new manager isn't clear yet. Baird put up strong statistics including a clean sheet and could be a relatively cheap option if he retains his starting position. Wed, Jan 14, 2015 01:51:00 PM

West Brom continued to reshape their defense with the addition of versatile veteran Chris Baird from Burnley.

On the same day that Burnley announced the signing of West Brom reserve defender Steven Reid, West Brom have announced the signing of Burnley utility defender Chris Baird. A veteran of six Premier League seasons with Fulham, Baird can fill in across the back line and will likely provide cover for newly signed center back Joleon Lescott and returning defensive anchor Gareth McAuley. Albion have been aggressive in adding experienced Premier League campaigners this summer with Baird joining Lescott and Craig Gardner.
