WEST BROMWICH ALBION have agreed new deals in principle with out of contract duo Adam and James Chambers.
The 21-year-old twins, who have previously been linked with a move to Midlands rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers, have now agreed to stay at The Hawthorns for another three seasons each.
It had been thought the players were unhappy with the club's original contract offer, however with the club keen to keep the youngsters they reportedly upped their deal for the pair.
"We are delighted to have come to an agreement with James and Adam (pictured)," said Albion's managing director Brendon Batson.
"Everything's been resolved - we're just waiting for them to sign the contracts.
"We want to keep all our good young players and we want the twins to continue the progress they have made of the past two seasons.
"We know what they're capable of and we're hoping they can play a big part in the club's future," concluded Batson.
Meanwhile, Baggies boss Gary Megson has now said that he has agreed in principle to a new three-year deal after some final problems had been ironed out.
"The contract is agreed in principle but it has to be ratified by various people," said Megson.
"I don't envisage any problems with this at all. This isn't a big issue although some people are trying to turn it into one.
"What is important to myself and family is that the contract I sign is right. But these things take time and that is normal."
The news will be welcomed by Baggies fans as the club start to tie down their best players, and the manager to The Hawthorns, as striker Scott Dobie also looks set for a new deal.
