Morrison signs new West Brom deal

West Bromwich midfielder James Morrison has signed a new four-year contract with the club that keeps him at the Hawthorns until 2016.

Morrison arrived at West Brom from Middlesbrough in 2007 and has established himself as a key member of the Baggies squad.

The Scotland international netted five goals and assisted on five more last season in 30 league appearances, and manager Steve Clarke feels as though the extension is a fair reward.

"After strengthening the squad during the transfer window, it's equally important to hold onto your best players and I'm delighted James has signed a new deal," Clarke told the club's official website.

"The new contract is fair reward for James' hard work and efforts. "He's been here a number of years now and has always been one of the key players."
