The Scotland international has explained his reasons for keeping the news out of the headlines and he is happy to commit his long-term future to the club.
"I signed a new deal in February, but, to be honest, I wanted it kept low key because I wanted to concentrate on getting fit," Morrison told the club's official website.
"I wanted to ensure I was over my injury when I signed it. But it's quite settling to know that a club wants you to be part of their future.
"I was more than happy to sign it because I'm really happy at West Brom."
