West Brom head coach Roy Hodgson expects to start talks over a new contract after the 3-0 home win over Blackburn virtually guaranteed Barclays Premier League survival.

But Hodgson, who is believed to be one of the candidates for the vacant England post, hinted that a get-out clause could be inserted in any new deal. Albion are 11 points clear of the bottom three after a Martin Olsson own goal and second-half efforts from Marc-Antoine Fortune and Liam Ridgewell sealed victory.

Hodgson, whose current deal runs out this summer, said: "Now things are safer I dare say Dan Ashworth (Albion technical director) will make contact with the man I use as an advisor. I dare say he will start discussing what potentially will happen with regards to myself."
