Erik Pieters has penned a new one-year deal to continue his stay at The Hawthorns.

The experienced defender made 36 appearances in the Sky Bet Championship last campaign after joining in the summer of 2022.

His new contract will run until the end of the 2023/24 term.

“I’m really pleased to extend my stay for another year,” said Erik.

“It’s really key to me that I have a good relationship with the manager. We spoke a lot last season, and I think the main thing is that he values me as a player.

“I’ll play wherever he needs me, and I want to keep going until I can’t do it anymore. I love the game too much.

“I have played professionally since I was 17, so it’s in my blood. It’s something I wake up and go to sleep thinking about.

“It will be hard work but I’m looking forward to this season. We’ll go again and make sure we achieve our targets and goals.”

And Head Coach Carlos Corberán is pleased to have Pieters as part of his squad once again this year.

“I was very keen to keep Erik at the football club after his contribution to our team last season,” added the boss.

“His experience and versatility are both important, but first and foremost he is an excellent defender - and also the type of personality we want in our squad.

“We are delighted that he will be on board for the coming campaign.”
