Myhill on the easy decision to extend contract

Goalkeeper has his say on new deal

BOAZ Myhill revealed the time spent negotiating his new contract lasted as long as it took for the agreement to be drawn up.

Albion's stopper penned a one-year extension to his existing deal, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2018.

The 33-year-old, who joined from Hull City in 2010, admitted the choice to prolong his Hawthorns stay was a very simple one.

“It all happened very quickly,” said Myhill. 

“The whole thing only took about three days to sort out.

“It was an easy decision to make and the contract took as long to sort out as it did for the club to type it up.

“I’m happy to have got it sorted and it’s always nice to get it done before the season starts.

“When you are coming to the last year of your contract it can be a little unsettling so it’s great to have it done.

“It’s one of them where I know what I am getting and the club know what they are getting from me.

“The club has a trust in the goalkeeping department and they are happy with the way things are going which is what you want as a player.

“It’s up to me and Ben now to keep that going.”
