Morrison commits to Baggies

James Morrison has signed a new two-year contract with West Brom.

The 30-year-old, who has made more than 270 appearances since moving to The Hawthorns nine years ago, had been linked with Middlesbrough and Sunderland in recent weeks, but the Scotland international has committed his future to the Baggies by penning a new two-year deal with the option of a third.

"I was aware of the speculation and some of the stories were true. I had a good sit down and think about it - did I need a new challenge? What more could I do with the club?" Morrison told the club's official website.

"I spoke with my family, the chairman, [director of football administration] 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 added: "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.

"He will be keen to prove his worth this season and we are sure he has a big contribution to make."
