New Baggies deal for Dorrans


In-demand West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans has penned a new deal with Albion that will keep him at The Hawthorns until the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

Dorrans only signed a new contract with the Baggies in January but, after continuing to be linked with a transfer to West Ham United, has secured the extended arrangement.

Albion have already rejected three bids for the 23-year-old Scotland international from the Hammers and have now handed Dorrans a four-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months in the club's favour.

Boss Roberto Di Matteo told the club's official website:"I'm delighted Graham has signed a new long-term contract, which is fully deserved.

"He made excellent progress last season and we're now very hopeful he can make the step up to the Premier League. There has been a lot of media speculation about Graham's future, but it hasn't affected him one bit.

"Ever since he has reported back for pre-season training, his attitude has been as spot on as it always is and I know for a fact how much he's looking forward to the new season.

"The exciting thing is that Graham knows he still has a lot of work to do and is yet to reach his full potential."

Dorrans has scored 19 goals in 63 appearances for Albion since joining the club from Livingston two years ago.
