Winger Chris Brunt has signed a new three-year contract with West Brom.

The Northern Ireland international, 25, joined from Sheffield Wednesday in 2007 following a £3m deal and has become a regular in Roberto Di Matteo's line-up.

Brunt signed a three-year deal in 2009 but his new improved contract is set to keep him at The Hawthorns until 2013.

"The club is heading in the right direction and this is a nice bonus ahead of what I hope will be a big season," he told the club's website.

"I've won promotion with the club twice now and I want to top that by helping to establish Albion in the Premier League.

"That's the challenge facing the coaching staff and players and if we all pull together I believe we can have a successful season.


"The fans have been great to me during the past three years and I'm sure they'll get right behind us next season when we will need them more than ever."

He becomes the third player to commit to the Baggies alongside fellow midfielders Graham Dorrans and Youssouf Mulumbu.

Brunt made 43 appearances last season, scoring 13 goals from midfield as West Brom finished second in the Championship, securing their return to the Premier League.

"Brunty fully deserves his new deal as he is an important player for us both on and off the field," said boss Di Matteo.

"He was a pillar of our promotion success last season and he has another important role to play this season as we look to establish ourselves in the Premier League."
