West Bromwich Albion captain Chris Brunt has agreed a three-year contract extension to become the latest player to commit his future to the club.

The 26-year-old, who has the option of  further year included, was instrumental in helping the Baggies remain in the Premier League.

The Northern Ireland international has scored 31 goals in 157 appearances since moving to the Hawthorns in 2007 from Sheffield Wednesday for £3million.

He took the captain’s armband from Scott Carson in January and lost just three games as Albion went onto finish a high of 11th in the Premier League.

Just last week the players’ and fans’ player of the year, Youssouf Mulumbu, also pledged his future to Albion through to the end of 2015.

For Brunt, the latest deal is the second time he has been offered a one-year contract extension in 13 months, highlighting his exceptional form last season.

“I’m pleased Chris has been rewarded with this extension on improved terms,” manager Roy Hodgson said. “It is fully deserved.

“He’s been a great club servant and I’m delighted he’s committed himself for a longer period.”
