West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke is confident Shane Long is committed to the cause.

Long missed out on a move to Hull City on deadline day and is stalling over new contract talks.

"I don't do contracts but I know that Shane has spoken to Richard Garlick (sporting and technical director). Whether they spoke about contracts or something else I couldn't tell you," said Clarke.

"His response has been perfect. He's a total professional and a really good guy."
