Cape Town - West
Brom midfielder Craig Gardner was a picture of delight as he signed an
extension to his contract that will keep him at the Hawthorns until the
end of 2018.
The 29-year-old former Aston Villa, Birmingham, and Sunderland player
put pen to paper on Wednesday evening, with his new deal carrying the
option of a further 12 months.
Gardner, who made 81 appearances for the Baggies, scoring six goals
since his arrival from the Stadium of Light, was delighted to commit
himself to the ambitious Midlands club.
He told the West Brom official website: "It’s brilliant for me to
extend my contract, especially at a time when the club are bringing in
some top players.
"This is a great family club and the lads are brilliant to play with.
"I just want to keep playing Premier League football alongside some
top players that can hopefully help us climb into the top ten."
