Jonas Olsson believes new West Brom boss Steve Clarke will do well at The Hawthorns, but he will not make a decision on his future until after Euro 2012.
Olsson has only one year left of his current Albion deal and has been strongly linked with a summer move to Tottenham.
But the Sweden defender re-iterated he will make no decision on his future until after the championships as his country prepare to take on former Baggies boss Roy Hodgson's England in Friday's crucial Group D encounter in Kiev.
He said: "It's not in my focus right now, my future at West Brom.
"I'm just going to focus on this tournament and the game on Friday against England.
"I've said all along I would think about my own position after the European Championships and nothing has changed.
"I'm just concentrating on trying to help Sweden get the two wins we need after losing to Ukraine to ensure we qualify without having to worry about other results."
But the Swede backed Clarke to be a success at The Hawthorns.
"I think Steve Clarke can do very well for us," said Olsson. "I spoke to him briefly the other day and he seems like a nice man.
"He has done well with the teams he has coached so I am happy.
"I think it is a good appointment and I think he will do well for West Brom."
