West Bromwich Albion have handed a new two-year contract to defender Paul Robinson as a reward for his outstanding displays in last year's charge to the Championship title.
The club also have the option of extending the contract for a further 12 months which, if invoked, would extend Robinson's stay at The Hawthorns to eight years.
The 29-year-old was due to be out of contract next summer but will now be able to concentrate on helping Albion remain in the Premier League this season.
"I am delighted," Robinson said. "The manager and the chairman wanted to get new players in first and I fully understand that.
"Now it's sorted I can get my head down and get on with my football again. People do get concerned about being in their last year and wondering whether they are in the manager's plans but for me that was never a problem. No matter what had happened I would have given my all for the year.
"The club have been good to me, given me a new deal. I talked it over with my wife and went through it together but there was never any doubt about me staying."
