No rush for Olsson to sign new contract

Defender Jonas Olsson insists there is no rush for him to sign a new contract with West Brom.

Olsson was upset at reports from his native Sweden indicating he would not sign a new deal until after the Euro 2012 finals because he was targeting joining a bigger club.

The centre-back, who has 18 months remaining of his current deal, said: "I have been here for four years and I have signed two contracts already and I have been speaking with the club for a while about extending.

"I can definitely see myself extending contracts but, like always when you're negotiating contracts, there are bits and pieces that need to come together and it's an ongoing process.

"Because I have more than a year and a half left on my contract there is no rush. That's the way I feel and it's the way the club feel.

"It's not like we're speaking every day about it but we've had some meetings and we'll take it from there."
