Olsson stalls on new Baggies deal

Defender Jonas Olsson has revealed he has reservations about extending his West Brom contract despite starting talks over a new deal.

The Sweden international's ambition of playing for a title-chasing club means he will hang fire on any decision until after the European Championship finals next summer.

Centre-back Olsson, who has another 18 months remaining on his deal, said: "We have been discussing contracts during the autumn. The club wants to extend, but I haven't made my mind up yet."

He added: "I am truly enjoying myself at West Brom and it's not impossible that I will extend my contract here.

"But at the same time I might be in a good position if I do well at the end of the season and also at the European Championship.

"I am looking forward and would consider a move to another club in England or another league."

Speaking to Helsingborgs Dagblad, Olsson added: "My dream is to play for a club that fights for titles."
