West Brom are becoming "increasingly optimistic" that defender Jonas Olsson will sign a new contract, Press Association Sport understands.

Albion are holding further talks with the Swedish international who is entering the final year of his current deal. Sources close to the Baggies claim negotiations are "progressing nicely" with the 29-year-old who has been a key figure in the club establishing themselves in the Barclays Premier League.

West Brom boss Steve Clarke is reluctant to make any bold claims publicly on Olsson's future, but said: "Jonas has a year left on his contract and he understands that. I think he'll make decisions based on what's best for him and his family. Hopefully it's a positive decision for us."
