West Brom boss Roy Hodgson wants to tie down Jonas Olsson to a new deal.

The Swede is off contract in June.

Hodgson said: "Jonas will be entering the last year of his contract next year and no club really wants that to happen with the players they are anxious to keep.

"Albion and myself are anxious to keep Jonas. I can only hope the negotiations he and his advisor are having now with the club will be brought to a satisfactory conclusion.

"Talks are ongoing. We are not panicking he will walk out of the door in May, but the sooner the talks reach a conclusion, the better it is for everyone.

"It is nice to know what players you can rely upon when you are planning for the future."
