Mel keen to stay at West Brom if given guarantees

The manager has previously admitted to being unsure on his continuing employment at The Hawthorns, but says he will not leave if his wishes and needs for the club are met
West Brom coach Pepe Mel says he is keen to stay next season if given assurances about the club's future.

The 51-year-old - who has previously revealed there is a get-out clause in his West Brom contract - watched his side fall to a 1-0 defeat at Arsenal on Sunday and has previously told Goal he is unsure over his stay.

The club's Premier League survival is yet to be guaranteed and Mel has confirmed he and owner and chairman Jeremy Peace at the end of the season to determine plans for next season.

"After the Stoke City game [on the last day] we'll have a meeting [and] then we'll decide whether or not I'm going to be at West Brom next season. The really important thing is the club know what I feel," he said.

"I will have a meeting with the chairman and I'll express what I want in order for me to continue.

"I want to keep West Brom up in the Premier League and I can tell you now I'd be extremely happy to be at West Brom next season.

"The supporters are the best, they've been very kind with me. This is why I'd be very happy if we were to continue together."
