Striker Shane Long says he is not entertaining the thought of departing West Bromwich Albion.

The Republic of Ireland international was linked with former club Reading as well as Liverpool in January but he has made it clear that he will at least see out his contract with the Baggies.

"Am I committed to West Brom for next season? Yes, I'm happy here. I like playing for the manager here. He is very good, and I'm learning a lot every week," he told Sky Sports.

"The lads are a good bunch, the family are happy up here, so I'm not looking to move on.

"I'm concentrating on this season and hopefully getting a few more goals before the summer and kicking on from there."
