James Morrison signs new two-year West Brom deal

30 Jun

West Brom midfielder James Morrison has signed a new two-year contract with the Premier League club.

The 30-year-old, who joined the Baggies from Middlesbrough in 2007, is now tied to the Hawthorns until 2018.

West Brom also have an option to extend the deal by a further year.

Morrison, who missed the second half of last season through injury, told the club website: “I had a good sit down and think about it – did I need a new challenge? What more could I do with the club?

“I spoke with my family, the chairman [Jeremy Peace], [director] Richard Garlick and they told me their vision about where we go from here and I also thought about the end of last season. I didn’t like the way I went out – walking around the pitch and then out the door.

“I had worked too hard for it to finish like that. Now I hope that we can push the club on again, because we all have to accept that since finishing eighth we haven’t done as well as we wanted to.”

Head coach Tony Pulis said: “It was inevitable that James would consider his options at the end of his contract, but we’re delighted that he has decided to sign back up with Albion.”
