West Bromwich Albion's James Morrison
According to The Telegraph, West Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison is set to sign a new contract and snub a return to former club Middlesbrough.
Morrison, 30, joined Middlesbrough as a 12-year-old way back in 1998 having been born in nearby Darlington, and went on to score seven goals in 98 appearances as a first-team player for Boro.
However, Morrison left Teesside in August 2007, as he completed a move to join West Bromwich Albion - and he's been a key player at The Hawthorns ever since.
Morrison's contract expires in a matter of days, and after just 19 appearances last season, many expected the Scotland international to leave this summer - with a possible move back to Middlesbrough mooted following their promotion back to the Premier League.
That means Middlesbrough must now turn their attentions elsewhere, and the Baggies finally get to keep one of their longest-serving and most experienced players in a smart move for Tony Pulis' side.
Are you happy to see Morrison stay at West Brom?
