Conor Townsend has put pen to paper on a contract extension which commits his long-term future to Albion. 

The 28-year-old, who is in his fourth season with the Baggies, has agreed a deal which will keep him under contract at The Hawthorns until the summer of 2025.

The left-back has put in a string of eye-catching performances for Valerién Ismaël’s men this term, with the club opting to add a further year to his stay in the Black Country.  

Townsend has made 92 appearances for the Baggies since joining from Scunthorpe United in the summer of 2018 and has been ever-present for Albion so far this season.

And the Baggies boss is delighted to have another first-team player committed to the future, having already extended the deals of Darnell Furlong, Matt Phillips and Kyle Bartley earlier in the campaign.

“It’s great news for the club,” said Ismaël. “Since I have been here Conor has played at a high level with consistency. He is a flexible player with the skill and profile we need.

“So far, he has improved in every game for us, especially in different positions such a centre-back, where he has got even better. He has adapted to our philosophy and hits the numbers we need.

“It is a good commitment from him to the club, the team and the staff, to extend his contract. I’m delighted we can continue to work with Conor over the next few years.”
