Jonas Olsson has admitted he will seek a fresh challenge in the future, but that he’s going to honour his contract with the Baggies first.

Speaking to the E&S Olsson talked about what the future could hold for him and that he would like to test himself at a club where silverware would be an option, as well as returning to Europe before he retires – but the important thing for Baggies fans is that he has pledged to see out his four year contract at the club first.

‘I always enjoy living in new countries and learning new languages and I could see myself playing in Italy, Spain or Turkey, but it was always my dream to play in the Premier League. I am grateful to be here, I can see myself here for a long time.’

Talking about dreams and ambitions he says it’s important for players to want to constantly improve themselves and want to perform at the highest level they can. Adding that if you’re playing in Holland you want the move to the Premiership, if you’re in the Premiership you want the move to a top club and to win trophies.

It’s just a natural part of a player wanting to achieve as much as they can in their careers, and shouldn’t be taken as a slight by smaller clubs in the top divisions – especially as a player can only achieve those aims by performing well for the club they are contracted to.

‘What is important is performing where you are at the moment. If we don’t do that we can’t fulfil our dreams. I signed for four years two years ago and that is an indicator that I am happy here and want to stay here.’
