Greening committed to Albion

11 Apr 2009 - 11:03:04

West Bromwich Albion captain Jonathan Greening says he is highly unlikely to leave the club, even though they face almost certain relegation from the Premier League.

The 30-year-old has been with the Baggies since the summer of 2004 and is keen to secure a new contract at The Hawthorns, with his current deal running out in just over a year's time.

Greening said: "I think it is a case of everyone to their own decision. It is the best league in the world and people want to play in it.

"For a young lad, who wants to be in the best league in the world and has got international aims, they want to play in the Premier League.

"If we go down, I can understand why people would like to see if anything comes up. But, for me personally, this is a great club, with great backing, great fans.

"I know we are bottom of the Premier League at the moment, but it is a club on the up and has got a really bright future.

"I would like to stay. I've been trying to hint to the chairman for the past few weeks to offer me a new contract, but I don't think anyone is listening.

"I've got one more year after this. You usually start talking when there is a year left so, as long as the manager and the chairman would like me to, I'd love to stay."
