West Brom ace delighted with new deal

West Brom midfielder James MorrisonWest Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison is delighted to have committed himself to the club.

The 26-year-old signed a new four-year contract last week that will see him remain at The Hawthorns until June 2016. Morrison, who joined the Baggies in August 2007, is now hopeful that his team-mates Jonas Olsson and Chris Brunt will sign new contracts as well. He told the Birmingham Mail:

“This is my sixth season here now. I’m committed to the club, I feel settled here. There was no reason for wanting to leave. I’m 26, the longest-serving player and I quite like that. Hopefully other players like Chris Brunt and Jonas will follow. It feels like home. That’s down to playing every week, the team playing well, being settled. The fans have been great with me, the new manager [Steve Clarke] coming in has been a big factor in me signing.”

West Brom are currently sixth in the Premier League table with seven points from four matches, three points behind leaders Chelsea.
