Swedish defender will not be leaving The Hawthorns.
West Brom manager Steve Clarke has ruled out selling central-defender Jonas Olsson in the January transfer window despite interest in him from Premier League strugglers QPR.
Olsson has been a major part of the West Brom success story this season under Clarke and was rewarded for his performances at the heart of defence with a new four-year contract which he signed in October.
Following Ryan Nelson’s move to become coach of Toronto FC in the MLS, QPR tabled an offer for Olsson as they continue their search for an experienced defender to boost their chances of avoiding the drop from the Premier League.
But West Brom have rejected that approach and insisted that 29-year-old Swedish international Olsson, who has also been linked with Arsenal in certain quarters, will be going nowhere and will be at The Hawthorns in Febriary and beyond.
West Brom manager Steve Clarke said: “Why would I expect to lose Jonas in January? January is the silly season. We can hang on to every single player. We don’t have to sell anybody.”
QPR have already failed with bids to bring Manchester City’s Joleon Lescott and Everton’s Sylvain Distin to Loftus Road, but remain interested in Tottenham’s William Gallas.
