Defender Steven Reid today revealed he is playing for his Albion future in the final 11 weeks of the Premier League season.
The Baggies full-back believes he must convince the club to take up an option to keep him for next season.
The 31-year-old said a set number of appearances would trigger an automatic option for an extra year, but he refused to reveal the figure and admitted he wants to convince the club to keep him, regardless of the clause.
Reid, who had made just nine appearances this season before today’s trip to Chelsea because of injury, said: “It is games-related and I’m hoping it will just roll on into next season, but I’ve still got plenty to play for. It is the club’s option in the summer so we will wait and see what happens.
“I want to carry on playing in the Premier League. A lot of the season has been hampered with a couple of injuries but I just want to keep playing from now until the end of the season. ”
Reid is one of several players on whom Albion must make significant decisions in the summer. They have already opened talks over new contracts with Gareth McAuley and Shane Long, who have 17 months to run on their existing deals.
And Jerome Thomas and Marc-Antoine Fortune are both out of contract.
