Olsson unsure of West Brom future despite contract

Wanted West Brom defender Jonas Olsson is unsure about his future at the club although he has vowed to fulfil his contract.

The Swedish defender was a shining light in an otherwise dismal season for the Baggies and his performances have attracted attention from several Premier League rivals.

The fact that West Brom have been relegated makes it a difficult situation for Olsson as he would love to play at the highest level but also wants to complete his commitment at The Hawthorns.

"I don't want to think about the future now," he said in the Express and Star.

"I have a contract here and, as it is now, I want to fulfil it. That's the way I feel. I have a contract.

"Of course every player wants to play as high as possible, but I like it here and it's a great club. But this is the time for being disappointed and I don't want to think about the future right now.

"It's a shame we couldn't stay up to go into The Premier League next season with a year's experience but that's the way it is," he added.

"There are some things you adapt to quickly and some things that are more difficult."
