Yacob signs new West Brom deal

The 27-year-old midfielder has agreed terms on a deal which will keep him at The Hawthorns until summer 2017.

Yacob has made 85 appearances for the Baggies since joining from Racing Club three years ago.

The Argentine midfielder emerged as a key member of Tony Pulis’ midfield during the second half of last season, forming an effective partnership with captain Darren Fletcher as West Brom finished 13th in the Premier League.

He finalised his new deal on Friday after returning from Albion’s pre-season trip to Austria.
