Myhill agrees new West Brom deal

HITC Sport understands goalkeeper Boaz Myhill is set to end speculation over his future by signing a new deal.

HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Boaz Myhill has agreed a new deal at the Hawthorns.

Myhill's future has been the subject of speculation with his previous deal expiring this summer, although West Brom took up the option of extending it for a further year.

A number of clubs, including Reading and Nottingham Forest, are thought to have expressed an interest in former Wales international Myhill, and now West Brom have moved to secure his long-term future.

Myhill enjoyed a good run in the West Brom side at the back end of last season after filling in for the injured Ben Foster.

The 32-year-old kept four clean sheets in eight appearances, including a penalty save in a famous 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford

With Foster not expected to be back in action until October until the earliest West Brom boss Tony Pulis has been determined to keep hold of Myhill.

Myhill is expected to sign a two-year extension at West Brom to extend his stay at the club after joining in 2010 from Hull City.

West Brom are also in talks with young goalkeeper Jack Rose about a new deal with the highly-rated shot-stopper seeing his contract expire earlier this summer.
