The 30-year-old, who joined the Baggies from Middlesbrough in 2007, is now tied to the club until 2018 and West Brom will also have an option to extend the deal by a further year.

Morrison missed the second half of last season through injury but knows he remains an integral part of Tony Pulis’ first-team plans, after holding talks with club officials.

Speaking to the club website, the Scotland midfielder said: “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 and 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.”

Meanwhile, head coach Tony Pulis went on to add: “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.”
