England international goalkeeper Scott Carson has reaffirmed his commitment to West Brom, stating he will be staying on despite relegation.
The former Aston Villa and Charlton shot-stopper revealed last January that he would not be looking for the Hawthorns exit door if they failed to avoid the drop.
West Brom ultimately failed to secure a second season of top-flight football despite a brave effort and Carson insists his stance has not changed.
The 23-year-old, who has won three caps for his country, is now looking forward to a successful season in the Championship and an instant Premier League return.
When asked about whether he is would be staying, he told the Birmingham Mail: "Definitely.
"I signed a four-year contract, so I am going to see that out.
"Hopefully we're going to have a good season and get the club back up into the Premier League where it belongs."
Carson admits their relegation campaign was hard to take, although he is relishing the prospect of getting back into the winning habit.
"As much as the Premier League is unbelievable, when things are going against you on a Saturday it's very difficult for the rest of the week," he continued.
"When you're going home on a Saturday night thinking about getting beaten again it's hard.
"But this year hopefully we can go home having won games and get that good feeling back. It makes your whole week a lot better."
