Clarke heaps praise on 'terrific' Olsson

Published Add your comment

West Brom manager Steve Clarke has praised the performances of central defender Jonas Olsson while uncertainty continues to surround his future.

Olsson's agent, Martin Dahlin, held further talks over a new contract for the Swedish international on Thursday afternoon with Albion's sporting director, Dan Ashworth, at the club's training ground.

Former Chelsea and Liverpool number two Clarke said: "Jonas's discussions are ongoing. The fact that his agent was here tells you that. We've made it clear we want him to stay but Jonas has been terrific in the matches he's played since I've been here. The contract talks certainly haven't been playing on his mind and he has played a big part for Albion."
