Cox desperate to sort out his West Brom future

Simon Cox joined West Brom for an initial fee of £1.5 million last July on a two year contract. The club also hold a further two years as an option and following a fine first season, in which he has netted nine Championship goals and ten in total, the Baggies are certain to want to do some business, reports the Birmingham Mail.

"That's up to them, we'll see how it goes," the 23 year old said.

"If they feel I warrant something, or if they want to take up one or two of those years, then we will sit and have a chat.

"I am settled up here now, I am very happy. It's a good club and I'd like to stay for a few more years at least."

Cox was overlooked when he was with Reading in the Premier League and feels he has unfinished business with Albion next year.

"I look back as I did not get a chance in the Premier League,' he added.

''The manager at the time (Steve Coppell) had his favourite players and had the team he wanted to play on a regular basis and I didn't fit anywhere into that.

"I had to seek football elsewhere and if I hadn't then I probably wouldn't be a West Brom player now.

"So I am happy with the decisions I have made. I can have a proper go at the Premier League now."
