Baggies chief happy to wait on deal talks

Steve Clarke does not expect to hear from the West Brom hierarchy any time soon regarding a new contract.

Having taken the step up from his role as assistant manager with the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool, Clarke has enjoyed a fine first season as the club's head coach.

They head into Saturday's clash with relegation-threatened Wigan in eighth place, and already have one more point than they collected in the 2011/12 campaign.

But the Scot, who has another season to run on his initial two-year deal, is not anticipating talks over an extension.

"I don't expect a word (from the club) every day when I'm under contract," he said.

"I don't expect anything. I come in every day and do my job as best I can: that's it.

"I don't sit wondering, I don't contemplate what might happen in the future, I just work with the contract I've got."

Despite being unconcerned about a potential extension, Clarke is enjoying life at the Hawthorns and would welcome discussions as and when they arrive.

"I'm comfortable and happy," he said.

"If a contract is offered to me I would speak about it."
