Morrison pens new Albion contract

30 June 2016
Since then, the Scotland international has established himself as a favourite at The Hawthorns and closed the 2016/17 season taking his place among the Club's top 40 appearance makers as he equalled the historic figure of Billy Bassett (311 appearances).
 
After a frustrating opening to the campaign hampered by injury, Mozza's return in the late autumn was a key factor in Albion's best run of form during the season as he weighed in with five goals.
 
It all began with his move from Middlesbrough in a rebuilt team that went onto to take the 2008 Championship title. He has been through thick and thin with the Baggies since then, playing for seven managers/head coaches, in a period stretching eight Premier League campaigns, two promotions and one FA Cup semi-final.

Morrison on joining 300 club

20 February 2017
One of them, Roy Hodgson, returned to The Hawthorns in February to present Morrison with a specially-signed shirt to mark his 300 appearances for the Club.
 
Morrison is contracted to Albion until at least the summer of 2018 having signed a new two-year deal in June 2016, which includes a further 12-month option in the Club's favour.
 
The midfielder represented England at every level up to under-20, but pledged his international future to Scotland in the summer of 2007, qualifying through his grandparents, and made his full senior international debut in a 3-1 friendly defeat by the Czech Republic in May 2008. 
 
He was named as the joint runner-up in the club's official Player-of-The-Season award in 2008/09, but the he suffered a frustrating time the following season due to a heel problem. 
 
Previously the Darlington-born man played a key role in Boro's FA Youth Cup triumph in 2004, scoring twice in the 3-0 first leg win at Villa and adding to his collection of personal milestones in May 2006 by claiming a UEFA Cup runners-up medal.
