West Bromwich Albion striker Hal Robson-Kanu has signed a new contract keeping him at the club until 2021 as confirmed on the club’s official website.

The forward’s current deal would have expired next summer but he has now agreed terms to keep him at the club for a further year.

The former Wales international striker joined the Baggies in August 2016 and has made five Sky Bet Championship appearances for Albion so far this campaign although only one of them has been from the start.

Robson-Kanu has been effective in recent weeks impressing in cameo performances against Fulham and QPR and is delighted to have signed a contract extension with the club.

“It’s fantastic for me and it remains a real pleasure to represent this club,” said Robson Kanu. “Slaven is building a strong squad here which can compete and I’m looking forward to contributing over the course of the season.”

“We’re going to need the whole squad for the battle ahead and need strength in every position, whether that is being in the team as a first choice or coming into games to make an impact.”

“There’s a real focus around the place now which Slaven has helped create but we need to maintain what we’re doing.”

The striker has not been the most prolific in his time at the Hawthorns with him having scored just nine goals in 74 appearances during his three year stint so far.

Robson-Kanu is likely to remain as one of the back-up options to first choice striker Charlie Austin this season for the Championshp leaders.
