Albion exercise options on duo

And club remain in talks with right-back

ALBION have exercised their one-year options on skipper Chris Brunt and Graham Dorrans.

The midfield duo are two of the club’s longest-serving players and played a key role in helping the Baggies secure a fifth successive season of Barclays Premier League football.

The club remain in talks with Billy Jones, whose contract expires at the end of June.

Director of Football Administration, Richard Garlick, said: “Chris and Graham have given the club long and valued service and played big parts in getting the team over the line last season.

“We have had ongoing discussions with Billy’s representatives about a new contract since last October, when we offered him a new long-term deal with substantially-improved terms.

“Talks are continuing but they have proved fruitless so far as Billy has yet to put pen to paper.”
