England goalkeeper Ben Foster has signed a new four-year contract with West Bromwich Albion.

The 31-year-old initially joined the Baggies on loan before

signing a three-year contract

in June 2012, and his new deal has an option for a further year.

“It was something I wanted to get sorted as soon as possible. I’m very happy here,” said Foster, who was part of England squad at the 2014 World Cup.

“It was a very obvious and easy decision for me and my family.”

Foster,

who quit the national team for two years in 2011,

played for England in the

goalless draw against Costa Rica

at the World Cup.

He had played for Stoke City, Manchester United and Birmingham City as well as having several loan spells at other clubs before arriving at The Hawthorns.

“Ben is an extremely important player for us – both on and off the pitch,” said Baggies head coach Alan Irvine.

“He’s a great personality, a great character and leads by example.”

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams has signed a three-year extension to his contract at the Liberty Stadium.

The 29-year-old central defender had been linked with a

possible move to Sunderland.

.

His contract was due to expire at the end of the 2014-15 season and his agent Jamie Moralee had warned that several clubs were interested in his signature.

Williams joined Swansea from Stockport in 2008 for £400,000 before signing his current contract in October 2012.

“I’m delighted to sign a new contract at Swansea City,” said Williams.

“I’ve enjoyed fantastic success at this club and I want to keep helping Swansea City progress.”

Nasri set to extend Man City contract

Samir Nasri is expected to sign a new long-term contract with Manchester City when he returns to pre-season training next week.

The 27-year-old midfielder’s existing deal expires next year and club officials want to extend it by a further four years.

A verbal agreement was reached before Nasri departed for the summer break.

The former Arsenal man had a superb season for City although he was

not selected in France’s World Cup squad.

Former manager Roberto Mancini paid a reported £25m to bring Nasri to the Etihad Stadium from the Gunners in 2011.

He suffered a loss of form during the Italian’s final season in charge of the club but has been rejuvenated under Manuel Pellegrini and scored seven goals in 34 appearances last term as City regained their Premier League crown.

Whether James Milner will follow Nasri’s lead is unclear.

The England man, 28, also sees his deal expire in 2015 but has been frustrated by a lack of opportunities to play in his preferred central midfield role.

against Aston Villa in February.

Norwich City striker Jamar Loza has signed a new two-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.

The 19-year-old made his first-team debut last season and also won his first international cap for Jamaica.

“This club has done so much for me, not just on the pitch but off the pitch too,” he told

the club website. 

“It’s going to be a busy season in the Championship, so hopefully I can play a few games, impress the boss and get into the team – that’s the plan.”

Loza had spells on loan at Coventry City, Leyton Orient and Southend United last season, but returned to feature in the final game of the Premier League campaign

against Arsenal

as the Canaries were relegated to the Championship.

He made his Jamaica debut in a friendly against Egypt in June and is expected to receive an opportunity in the City first team next season under new boss Neil Adams, who oversaw the youngster’s progress while coaching the youth team.

Britton signs new Swansea contract

Leon Britton has signed a one-year contract extension with Swansea City, keeping the midfielder at the Liberty Stadium until at least July 2017.

The 31-year-old has played for Swansea in every division of the Football League and has proved himself in the Premier League.

Britton made 34 appearances for the Welsh club this season.

He first joined the Swans in 2002 when the club were in the bottom tier and helped them survive relegation.

Britton initially joined Swansea on a season-long loan in December 2002 when the Welsh club were in Division Three.

He played in the famous 4-2 victory over Hull City on the final day of the season that saved the club from relegation to the Football Conference and signed permanently for the club shortly afterwards.

The former Arsenal trainee stayed with the Swans until June 2010 when he left to join Sheffield United on a free transfer.

But Britton spent only six months at Bramall Lane and admitted the move was a mistake before

returning to Swansea in January 2011.

He

signed a one-year extension in February 2013

but has again been rewarded following another impressive season, where he has maintained his reputation as one of the best passers in the Premier League.
