Albion academy product Tom Fellows has committed his future to the club after signing a three-and-a-half-year contract extension.

The 20-year-old winger has made 17 appearances for the Baggies this season, scoring in recent victories over Aldershot and Blackburn.

Birmingham-born Fellows will now be with the Baggies until at least the summer of 2027.

And Tom says the decision to sign a new deal was an “easy” one.

“I’m really happy to sign a new contract,” he said. “I feel this is the right place for me to develop and keep improving as a player.

“For me, the big thing is having the opportunities to play and to keep doing well.

“I feel like I can keep getting minutes here and for someone my age, I think the only way you get better is by playing games and being around the senior environment. Hopefully I can keep doing that.

“I got opinions from my family, my mom and my dad, on what they thought was best and our ideas were all very similar. It was an easy decision for me to make in the end.

“Carlos Corberán played a big part too because I know he believes in me. He’s shown that by playing me in games and starting me in others. It’s so important to have a manager that believes in you.”

“It’s down to me now to keep working hard.”

Carlos Corberán added: “I am very pleased that one of our players, who has been here since he was a boy, will be with us as a man.

“Tom has showed that he has the level required to perform in our first team and this contract is a reward for the hard work he has put in.

“Tom is an example to our academy players. His progress shows the pathway that exists at this club for our young players to make their way to the first-team squad and stay there.

“We will keep working with him to ensure he fulfils his full potential. He has a bright future and I am delighted that will be here with us.”
