Lifelong West Bromwich Albion fan and Academy graduate Sam Field put his signature to new and improved terms at the club yesterday.

The 20-year-old has signed a new contract which includes a performance-related extension of his terms until the summer of 2022 based on his progression in recent years. He’s been with us since he was aged eight and has steadily come through the ranks – making his first-team debut back in May 2016 where he came on as a late substitute as we took a point from Liverpool.

He has now made 22 appearances for the club as he continues his development and has now represented England at Under 21 level.

Speaking to after signing the deal he was clear his aim was to be a regular under head coach Darren Moore in 2018/19.

“It’s nice for it to be sorted and I can just concentrate on the future, which I’m really looking forward to. Any time the club offers you a new contract, it’s brilliant. It’s always been an ambition of mine to play at The Hawthorns week in, week out and that’s my aim next season. I’m just delighted the club have offered me a new deal and I’m grateful for that.”

He becomes the fifth homegrown youngster to extend his terms so far this summer following on from Jonathan Leko, Jack Fitzwater, Dara O’Shea and Max Melbourne.

He is one of the players to miss out on this week’s training camp in Scotland as the club have held him back as in his attempts to impress. He’s done too much and picked up a niggle, so that’s a big lesson for him right there but does say a lot about his attitude.
