The non-league side have brought him in for the 2021/22 season, as announced by their official club website.

Emery has done enough to earn a move there now and will be pleased to have found a new home.

Kidderminster boss, Russ Penn, has said: “It was vital for Tom Palmer to go and get first-team football this season, but we knew we needed another option here and some added competition for Luke Simpson.

“Jamie will give him that and we’re pleased to have him with us.”

Emery joined West Brom as a youngster and has risen up through the academy of the Midlands club.

He broke into their Under-18s side last term and made 16 appearances in all competitions.

However, the Baggies decided not to extend his contract at the end of June and let him move onto pastures new.
