Brunt elated with Reid stay

21 June 2013 14:22

West Brom captain Chris Brunt is delighted that the club have secured Steven Reid's services for another year.

Reid, 32, made just 12 appearances last season in all competitions as he battled injury and struggled for a first-team place.

The versatile Reid, who can play in midfield and defence but has been primarily used as a right-back by West Brom manager Steve Clarke, signed a new one-year deal earlier this week.

And Brunt was full of praise for his experienced team-mate.

"I'm delighted he's extended his stay," he told the club's official website.

"He's a good lad and a good pro. He's a good lad to have around. From the outside people don't probably realise how much of an affect that has on the group.

"You know what you're going to get from 'Reidy'. He's a good leader and we need characters like that.

"He's proved that over the last few seasons here. I'm sure everyone is delighted he's staying.

"He looks after himself well, he's usually the first one in and the last to leave from the gym. When he suffers set-backs it never seems to affect him – he just gets on with it.

"That's the sort of attitude and character you need in the football club. And at his age, he is someone to look up to."
