West Bromwich Albion captain Chris Brunt has denied Sunday newspaper reports that he is currently in discussion with the club over a new contract. "There are no talks going on," the 27 year old is quoted as saying in The Birmingham Mail.

"I've barely played any football so I'm just training to try to get fit to get back into the first team.

"If that comes it comes if it doesn't it doesn't but I still have to do my job by playing football and earning that. I still have two and a half years with the option year.

"It looks like I'm begging for a contract. I'm not sure where they (the quotes) came from. It's a strange one."
