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.
â€śI donâ€™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 couldnâ€™t tell you,â€ť said Clarke.
â€śHis response has been perfect. Heâ€™s a total professional and a really good guy."
