James Morrison to re-sign with West Brom

James Morrison to re-sign with West Brom

West Bromwich Albion have been busy in the transfer window this summer as they continue to make improvements to their squad.

The Baggies are considered one of the favourites to win promotion from the Championship as they look to bounce back to the Premier League, however, they have lost a number of players along the way.

Darren Moore has seen a number of the first-team from last season leave, who he would have felt would have helped their chances this season, but he has managed to limit the damage those departures could cause with additions.

However, it looks as though he has turned to a former player to help with their aims this year as the club have confirmed on their official website that James Morrison has agreed to a new contract at The Hawthorns.

The midfielder had initially been released from the Baggies after 11 years at the club, but the determination he showed in training and during pre-season has convinced Moore to offer him a new one-year deal with the option of extending it by a further 12 months.

The Verdict:

It makes complete sense to keep Morrison at the club for another year as his experience will be vital for West Brom this season.

The 32-year-old joined the Baggies when they were in the Championship and helped guide them to the Premier League in his first season with them back in 2007, whilst he also helped them return to the top-flight in the 2009/10 campaign.

Should the Scotland international not be used as a starter, he could make an impact from the bench or will be a key man in helping aid the development of some of the club’s next generation.
