West Brom hand new deals to raft of young players

West Brom have handed new deals to a raft of young players.

The Express & Star says promising centre-backs Jack Fitzwater, 19, and Shaun Donnellan, 20, have both seen their one-year extensions taken up by the club.

Donnellan enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Dagenham & Redbridge in the National League in the second half of last season while Fitzwater impressed head coach Tony Pulis during pre-season last year.

Striker Tahvon Campbell, 20, and midfielder Kyle Edwards, 19, have also been kept on for another year. Campbell spent last season on loan at Yeovil Town and Notts County.

Defender Max Melbourne, 18, and midfielder Alex Bradley, 18, have both signed new one-year contracts.

Australian under-20 goalkeeper Jasko Keranovic, 19, has signed a one-year contract with a further 12-month option in the club's favour, while fellow shot-stopper Ethan Ross, 20, has agreed a one-year deal.

Goalkeeper Brad House, 18, and forward Evan Pierce, 18, have also been offered new deals.
