Jonas Olsson: Happy to have signed his latest contract

West Brom defender Jonas Olsson insists he is happy at West Brom despite having a summer get-out clause in the four-year contract he signed earlier this season.

The Baggies rejected a bid, believed to be around £5 million, for Olsson from QPR during the January transfer window.

Albion head coach Steve Clarke then revealed six specified clubs can trigger the get-out clause if they pay an agreed fee for Olsson.

But the Swedish international remains committed to the Baggies who he joined five years ago.

The 29-year-old said: "I don't like to speak about what is in my contract. It's confidential.

"But I made it clear that I am happy here when I signed for four years in September. I think that says it all.

"As I've said before, as a player you set goals with a team and as an individual and you always want to push higher in your career. I am no different to anyone else.

"I have dreams and ambitions to achieve - but I am very happy at the club and happy with what we have achieved this year and hopefully will achieve towards the end of the season."

Olsson has formed a solid partnership with Gareth McAuley who is in discussions about a new contract. He has 15 months to run of his current deal.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
