West Brom skipper Brunt delighted Olsson, Morrison inked new deals

West Bromwich Albion captain Chris Brunt is delighted seeing his teammates pen new deals.

Brunt is in his sixth season with the Baggies and is delighted key members of the squad James Morrison and Jonas Olsson have committed their long-term futures to the club by signing new four-year deals in the last month.

And the former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder says it shows they have a strong 'affinity' for the club.

He told the WBA website: "What has been important for us in the last few weeks is getting people like Mozza and Jonas on new long-term contracts.

"They've been here a long time, they know the place inside out and have been big players in the success we've had over the last four or five years, so I think it's right to see them rewarded for that.

"And it's great for the club to have them tied down here for seasons to come, which helps when it comes to planning.

"It's important to have a core of people who have been here a long time because they understand the place and have a special feel for the club and, speaking for myself, having that affinity with the club is really nice."
