Contract talks stall at West Brom

Jonas Olsson has admitted that he has not made up his mind whether he wants to stay at West Brom yet, as contract talks with the defender have stalled.

The Sweden international has secured a regular starting spot in Roy Hodgson’s side, and with only 18 months left on his contract The Baggies are keen to extend his deal.

However, with a bigger club and Euro 2012 in mind, Olsson has refused to commit to The Hawthorns-based team just yet.

“We have been discussing contracts during the autumn,” he revealed to Helsingborgs Dagblad.

“The club wants to extend, but I haven’t made my mind up yet.

“I am truly enjoying myself at West Brom and it’s not impossible that I will extend my contract here.

“But at the same time I might be in a good position if I do well at the end of the season and also at the European Championship.

“I am looking forward and would consider a move to another club in England or another league. My dream is to play for a club that fights for titles,” he concluded.

West Brom need to be careful not to get sucked back into the relegation battle, and host Blackburn at home on Saturday.
