James Morrison has revealed that he signed a new long-term contract with West Brom almost six months ago.
Graham Dorrans, Chris Brunt and Youssouf Mulumbu all penned new deals with the Baggies last month, but Scotland international Morrison signed a new three-year contract, plus a further year's option in the club's favour, in February.
He confirmed to the club's official website:"I wanted it kept low key because I wanted to concentrate on getting fit. I wanted to ensure I was over my injury when I signed it but it's quite settling to know that a club wants you to be part of their future.
"I was more than happy to sign it because I'm really happy at West Brom. I think I'm happier now than I've ever been and I'll probably think about settling in the Birmingham area.
"You obviously never know how football will go – there might be a manager here one day who wants something different. But while it's my choice, I'm happy to stay.
"I like the club and I love playing at The Hawthorns and the atmosphere that's created by our fans. You sometimes go to a stadium and there's no noise – but it's compact at West Brom. It's good to play here."
