Report: West Bromwich Albion to offer Boaz Myhill new contract

Myhill has been exceptional for West Brom since coming into the side.

As reported by the Birmingham Mail, West Brom are set to offer Myhill a new contract after a series of impressive performances for the Midlands club.

Since coming into the side during the 1-0 victory over Stoke in March, the Welsh international has made eight appearances, keeping four clean sheets and putting in excellent displays to secure victories over Manchester United and Chelsea.

Myhill was promoted to the first-team set-up following the injury suffered by Ben Foster in that victory over Stoke, and the English international is set to be out of action until October.

With Myhill’s contract expiring, and Foster’s injury, there have been fears that the Baggies would start next season without a recognised first-choice goalkeeper, unless someone was signed in the summer transfer window.

However, the report states that the Baggies are set to offer Myhill a new deal, which will likely be the 12-month extension already in the 32-year-old’s current contract.

Despite the reports concerning Myhill's new contract, it is still expected that Tony Pulis will look to bring in a stopper over the summer, to provide both competition for Foster and Myhill, as well as further cover for Foster due to his long-term injury, as per a different report in the Birmingham Mail.
