Baggies trio get first contracts

West Bromwich Albion

Three West Brom youngsters have been given their first professional contracts by the club.

Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo has rewarded attacking midfielder Romaine Sawyers, 17, with a deal after impressing in the reserves last season.

Right-back Dwayne Samuels, 18, has played in all of West Brom's friendlies so far this summer.

England Under-17 striker Lateef Elford-Alliyu, 17, has also been given a contract by the club.

All three will have first-team squad numbers for the Championship season, which gets underway on Saturday, 8 August when the Baggies host Newcastle United.
