Field signs new deal

SAM Field has today signed a new-and-improved contract at his boyhood club.

The 19-year-old, who joined the Baggies at the age of seven and is a lifelong fan, is now contracted to the club until the summer of 2021 after agreeing a one-year extension on his current deal.

The Hagley-born youngster penned his first professional contract in 2016 before a string of impressive first-team performances saw him rewarded with a four-year deal last season.

And the midfielder, who has represented England at under-20 level, has now committed his future to the Baggies for an extra year after he impressed in the first two Premier League fixtures against Bournemouth and Burnley.

"It's always an honour to play for West Brom and to get another year is just fantastic," said Sam.

"The more years I can spend here the better. I'm dead chuffed!"

Head Coach Tony Pulis commented: "We think Sam has tremendous potential and at the same time a wonderful attitude to progress his career."

And Chairman John Williams sees the agreement as further example of the Club safeguarding its future.

"Sam is one of our best young prospects and another player of real potential to emerge from the Academy.

"It's the right contract at the right time to protect his future development of the player and the Club."
