Field signs new long-term deal

Pulis delighted with youngster's progress

SAM Field has committed his long-term future to Albion by signing a new-and-improved four-year contract. 

The 18-year-old midfielder, who joined the Baggies at the age of eight and is a lifelong fan, is now contracted to the club until the summer of 2020.

The 2015/16 Academy Player of the Season made his Premier League debut as an 86th-minute substitute in Albion’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool on the final day of last term. 

Just two days later he was called up to the England under-18 squad for the two-match tour of South Korea in June.

The Hagley-born youngster signed his first professional contract with the club later that month and has impressed in three more senior appearances for Tony Pulis’ side this season.

“He has a very exciting future and we are all absolutely delighted to see him sign this contract.

“It’s now all about continuing to work hard and develop.”
