Myhill signs new two-year deal

23 July 2015

Goalkeeper looking forward to new campaign

BOAZ Myhill has today committed his future to Albion by signing a two-year contract.

The goalkeeper sat down this lunchtime to pen his new deal, which will keep him at The Hawthorns until summer 2017.

Myhill enjoyed an extended run in Albion's first-team during 2014/15 after Ben Foster suffered a knee injury.

In all he played 11 Barclays Premier League games last season, keeping four clean sheets along the way - including a brilliant performance in the 1-0 win at Manchester United, where he saved Robin Van Persie's penalty.

The 32-year-old  - Albion's fourth longest-serving current player after Chris Brunt, James Morrison and Jonas Olsson - is looking forward to 2015/16.  

He said: "It's great to get my future sorted out. 

"It's never easy being a goalkeeper when you're not in the team but the Premier League is the place you want to be in.

"I enjoyed the final few months of the season and tried to do my best during that period.

"Pre-season has been tough but now we are beginning to focus on making sure we are ready for that opening game of the season."

Head coach Tony Pulis said: "I'm delighted Boaz has signed his new deal.

"He had a smashing end to the season when he came into the side and has worked very hard throughout the summer."
