Mel to discuss West Brom future over the summer

West Bromwich Albion Head Coach Pepe Mel has claimed that his contract runs out this summer and will discuss his future with the club at the end of the season, Sky Sports has reported.

The Spaniard’s future has long been the subject of speculation despite only taking charge in January to replace Steve Clarke, who was dismissed the previous month. Mel has picked up three wins so far, which have guided the club to the brink of Premier League safety.

When they appointed Mel, West Brom stated that they had handed him an 18-month contract until the end of next season, but during his press conference on Friday ahead of Sunday’s game with Arsenal, he revealed that his deal expires after the final Premier League game of the season against Stoke City on May 11.

He said: "My contract finishes after the Stoke City match and then we will have the meeting for the future. It is an open contract. It's not closed, the contract. It's easy to understand; if Pepe Mel says yes and West Brom say yes, no problem.

"I think now only about the mentality of the players for Sunday. The players only need to hear me talk about Arsenal now. We need this point. It's not good for us to speak about the future. Wait only seven or eight days please then I'll speak with you about this all the time.

"I enjoy my job, being at West Brom and the fans, but January and February were very, very difficult for me, with Long leaving and the Anelka situation and more. But the most important thing is at the end. If at the end it's good, then no problem."
