Brunt's was made West Brom captain last season.

West Brom captain Chris Brunt has signed a new three-year contract to extend his stay at The Hawthorns.

It is the N Ireland player's second new deal in 13 months and comes as a reward for his impressive form last season.

Head coach Roy Hodgson said: "He's been a great club servant and I'm delighted he's committed himself to West Bromwich Albion for a longer period."

Midfielder Brunt, 26, has made 157 appearances for Albion, including 24 as a substitute, scoring 30 times.

He joins fellow midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu - who signed a new deal last week - in committing his long-term future to the Baggies.

Brunt joined West Brom from Sheffield Wednesday in 2007 and has lost only three games since taking over the captain's armband from Scott Carson in January.
