Albion right-backs Bruno and Inigo Calderon and reserve keeper Casper Ankergren have become the first players to sign up to the Sami Hyypia era.

The trio, as expected, have all put pen to paper on the new one-year deals offered to them at the end of last season.

Hyypia has been given the low down on Spanish duo Bruno and Calderon and experienced Danish custodian Ankergren by head of football David Burke and first team coach Nathan Jones.

Hyypia said: "Casper, Bruno and Inigo have been important members of the squad in recent years and I am pleased they have agreed terms with club for another year.

"They're experienced heads with a lot of games between them, they know the Championship well and they give us continuity within the squad.

"I had a limited knowledge of all three, but David and Nathan have given me some sound input on the entire squad - including the three of them.

"Having had a chance to review a number of DVD's from last season, I can see their qualities and I am sure they'll continue to be key for us in the season ahead."
