New Baggies deal for Olsson

West Brom have handed in-form defender Jonas Olsson a new four-year contract.

The Sweden international has been a key member of the Albion side which has started the new season so impressively, and his performances have been rewarded. He was due to be out of contract at the end of the season, but will now remain at the Hawthorns until 2016 at least.

"This is great news for the club and shows we're heading in the right direction," head coach Steve Clarke said of the man who was signed from NEC Nijmegen for £800,000.

"We've had a productive summer in terms of bringing new players in but it's equally important that you hold onto your best players, and Jonas certainly fits into that category."

Olsson has an ever-present record so far this season, helping West Brom to their best ever top-flight start. They also have the joint-fourth meanest defence in the division.

He has 13 caps for Sweden, who he represented at this year's European Championships.
