West Brom confirmed on Wednesday evening that left-back Conor Townsend has signed a new contract at The Hawthorns.
And, as to be expected, a number of Baggies fans went wild at the news on social media.
Townsend has started every Championship fixture under Valerien Ismael this season, turning out in his natural left-back role as well as at centre-back and as a left-midfielder.
He’s averaged more crosses than any other West Brom player this season and is second on the list for the number of key passes completed per game in the Championship, while also being dispossessed the least of any Baggies regular. [WhoScored]

“Well this has just absolutely made my day. Works hard, keeps himself to himself and has performed consistently in the three years that we’ve had him. Is it not about time he had his own song? Love you my mate”
“Massive news. Made my day”
“YES! Incredible bit of news, can’t wait for him to be back at LWB”
