In brief: Jonas Olsson signs new contract at West Brom

Sweden defender puts pen to paper to new four-year deal at The Hawthorns

  • Jonas Olsson had entered the final year of his deal at West Brom

West Bromwich Albion’s Jonas Olsson has committed his future to the club by signing a new four-year contract. The Sweden defender had entered the final season of his contract but a new deal was eventually agreed.

"This is great news for the club and shows we're heading in the right direction,” West Brom head coach Steve Clarke said. "We've had a productive summer in terms of bringing new players in but it's equally important that you hold on to your best players - and Jonas certainly fits into that category.

"He's a tough, uncompromising central defender who knows all about the Premier League and the opponents he's up against week in, week out. Jonas is also a very important character and leader in our dressing room."

Vice-captain Olsson joined West Brom from NEC Nijmegen four years ago and has played a big role in the club establishing themselves in the Barclays Premier League.

He follows West Brom midfielder James Morrison who last month also put pen to paper on a new four-year contract.
