Clarke gains West Brom a Jonas bonus

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

WEST BROM chief Steve Clarke has hinted that key de­fender Jonas Ols­son will re­main at the Hawthorns this sea­son.

With just one year left on his Bag­gies con­tract, spec­u­la­tion has been rife that the Swede, 29, will quit the club early.

But Clarke in­sisted: “There has been no in­di­ca­tion that Jonas is go­ing to leave us.

“Over the sum­mer he’s worked well and played with 100 per cent com­mit­ment.

“He’s got a year left on his con­tract, so as far as we’re con­cerned Jonas will stay with us.”

Clarke has been busy in the trans­fer mar­ket af­ter sign­ing keeper Ben Fos­ter and four other play­ers.

Clarke added: “It’s im­por­tant to get the ba­sis of your squad in place.

“We’ve tried to do our busi­ness early.”
