New West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke insists he wants to keep Jonas Olsson at the club.

The Sweden international centre-back has emerged as a strong target for Premier League new boys West Ham United but Clarke has made it clear that he is no hurry to sell the 28-year old.

"Ideally for me I want to keep all the contracted players and I'd like to bring in another two or three players that can help me," he said.

"Jonas is a key player for the team and the club, and I will do what I can to keep him here."
