West Brom’s highly-rated Scottish midfielder Graham Dorrans has ended months of speculation by penning a new four-year deal (with the option of a fifth) at the club.
Dorrans signed a fresh deal at The Hawthorns in January, but he has now seen his fine domestic form last season rewarded with an improved set of terms, in a bid to ward off heavy interest from West Ham.
The Hammers have already had a steady stream of bids rejected for the 23-year-old.
Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo told the club’s official website;
“He made excellent progress last season and we’re now very hopeful he can make the step up to the Premier League.
There has been a lot of media speculation about Graham’s future, but it hasn’t affected him one bit.
Ever since he has reported back for pre-season training, his attitude has been as spot on as it always is and I know for a fact how much he’s looking forward to the new season.
The exciting thing is that Graham knows he still has a lot of work to do and is yet to reach his full potential.”
Take that Goldivan, you two-headed filth pig!
