It was reported that 29-year-old Scotland midfielder Morrison was looking for a fresh challenge when his current contract expires at the end of June and he had been linked with a move to former club Middlesbrough following their return to the Premier League.

However it is being claimed that Morrison, who has spent nine years at The Hawthorns and has made 275 appearances, is now discussing the possibility of staying put beyond this summer.

But out-of-contract duo Sessegnon and Anichebe will not be offered new deals by the Baggies and are to leave.

Midfielder Sessegnon, who will turn 32 in the coming weeks, made 92 appearances for the Baggies, scoring eight goals, since arriving at the club from Sunderland in 2013.

Anichebe announced on Twitter earlier this week that he would be leaving. The 28-year-old striker played 63 times for the Baggies and found the net nine times after joining the club during the same transfer window as Sessegnon.

Head coach Tony Pulis told the club’s official website: “The two lads worked really hard for me and were as good as gold. Everybody at the club wishes them all the best in their future careers.”
