Jonas Olsson: Yet to sign an extension to a contract which is due to expire next summer

Ben Foster has called on West Bromwich Albion to do all they can to ensure that Jonas Olsson remains at the club.

The highly-rated centre-half is yet to agree fresh terms at The Hawthorns and will become a free agent next summer if no contract extension is put in place.

Goalkeeper Foster considers Olsson to be a key figure for West Brom heading forward and is desperate to see the Sweden international commit his long-term future to the club - fending off mounting interest in his services.

He said: "The chairman needs to lock him in a room and hopefully get something sorted out.

"If you take everything into account I'd much rather be playing with him and Gareth McAuley than the majority of defensive pairings.

"It's people like Jonas we need to be keeping. He is such an important part of our team."
