Has Boaz Myhill done enough to earn himself a new contract at West Brom?

West Brom

Myhill is out-of-contract this summer, but he has surely done enough to earn a new contract.

Myhill has been deputising for the injured Ben Foster for the last nine games, and he has impressed heavily in the Baggies rise to Premier League safety.

The Welsh international’s contract expires at the end of this campaign, as per the Birmingham Mail, and the club have yet to trigger the automatic one year extension that exists in his current deal.

With Foster set to miss the start of next season due to his long-term injury, and the club being without a recognised goalkeeper if Myhill leaves, it would come as no surprise to see Tony Pulis trigger the extension in the coming weeks.

And it is hard to deny that Myhill deserves a new contract, after a string of incredible performances.

After taking the starting ‘keeper’s role from Foster in a 1-0 victory over Stoke, Myhill was in goal for consecutive defeats to Manchester City, QPR and Leicester.

However, since then, Myhill has conceded just one goal in five games, and has been vital in victories over Manchester United and Chelsea, and in a 0-0 draw with Liverpool.

It was the Chelsea and United victories that showed his real talent, with some incredible saves keeping the Baggies in with a chance of victory - which they then took.

There is no denying that club would do well to sign another goalkeeper, with cover needed for Myhill due to Foster’s long-term absence.

However, they no longer need to focus upon signing a starting goalkeeper, with Myhill showing that he has enough quality to claim that role, and surely the new contract that comes with it.
