West Brom captain Chris Brunt has signed a new three-year contract with the club ahead of the Premier League season.
The new deal, which keeps Brunt at The Hawthorns until June 2017, comes after West Brom activated a 12-month option on the midfielder's contract.
The 29-year-old is one match shy of making 250 appearances for the club he joined from Sheffield Wednesday in 2007.
West Brom manager Alan Irvine said: "I'm delighted we have extended Chris' contract by a further two years.
"He's our captain, has great quality and experience and is clearly a very, very important player for us.
"Chris is an influential figure both on and off the pitch. He has the respect of all the players and staff and is a top class professional."
Brunt follows England goalkeeper Ben Foster in committing his future to West Brom in what has been a busy summer for the club.
In addition to Irvine's appointment as Pepe Mel's successor, Albion have signed eight players including England defender Joleon Lescott and on-loan Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom.
