Shane Long uncertain over future

Shane Long insists he has to be allowed to consider long-term options for his career if West Bromwich Albion continue to stall over a new contract.

Shane Long came close to a move to Hull during the summer transfer window.

Olsson backs Long

Republic of Ireland international Long has recently held further contract negotiations with WBA's technical and sporting director, Richard Garlick, but has still to be offered new terms at the Hawthorns.

Long, who came close to leaving WBA for a transfer-deadline day move to Hull City in the summer, insists he would prefer to remain with Steve Clarke's side, but he told the Express and Star: “I don’t want to go anywhere but time is running out on my contract.

“If an opportunity comes along that is right for me and my family, I will have to take a look at it. But as it stands I’m happy where I am -- as a family we’re happy where we are and I am enjoying life. I like playing for the manager and I am just concentrating on my football and hoping the rest takes care of itself.”

Long’s representatives have held talks about an extension to the striker's current deal, which has nine months to run plus a year’s option in Albion's favour, but Long says there has been no further progress.

“It’s still all up in the air. Nothing is concrete at the moment,” he said. “There was one offer in March or April and ever since then it’s gone quiet, so I am biding my time and seeing what they come back with. I will let that take care of itself and try to get minutes on the pitch, score goals and get my way back into the starting XI.”

Long flew from an Ireland training camp to meet with Hull City manager Steve Bruce on deadline day and looked set to sign after the clubs agreed a fee of around 6.5 million pounds, and Albion brought in Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe.

Albion chairman Jeremy Peace called the deal off when Hull attempted to renegotiate the terms, but Long is eager to point out that he does not hold any grudges against his current club and will continue to give his all at the Hawthorns.

“The manager rang me on the day and said he didn’t want me to go but it was an offer they had to take a look at,” the 26-year-old added. “He said he wanted me to stay and I was a big part of his plans, so it’s always refreshing to hear that.

“Hull made an offer that was accepted so I had to see what they had to say, but in the end West Brom didn’t want to let me go so I stayed here and it’s not as if I’m unhappy.

“But when the offer comes in you have to see what the other club has to say and whether it’s good for you or not. I am not disappointed that I didn’t go. I’m happy here, the lads are great and I’m enjoying playing football here.”
