Richie Towell joined Albion from League Of Ireland side Dundalk in January 2016, on a two-and-half-year deal until 2018.

In three years at Dundalk, Towell helped them win back-to-back League of Ireland titles, this season and last, and won a League of Ireland Cup medal in 2014 and an FAI Cup medal this year - completing an Irish league-and-cup double.

He also won a host of individual awards this season, to add to his 2013 Irish PFA Young Player of the Year Award, and his 29 goals in 44 games this season helped Dundalk retain the league title.

Towell has an excellent goalscoring record of 49 goals in 113 games in his time with Dundalk, and in his younger years was with Celtic - where he began his career - and Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League.

He's also represented Ireland at under-17, under-19 and under-21 level, and has made his ambitions clear to break into the full Irish squad.
