Olsson, who has started all six Premier League games under Steve Clarke this season, signed for West Brom in August 2008 for £800,000 from Dutch side NEC Nijmegen.

“This is great news for the club and shows we’re heading in the right direction," Clarke told West Brom's official website.

“We’ve had a productive summer in terms of bringing new players in but it’s equally important that you hold onto your best players, and Jonas certainly fits into that category.

“He’s a tough, uncompromising central defender who knows all about the Premier League and the opponents he’s up against week in, week out. Jonas is also a very important character and leader in our dressing room.”
