Groom-to-be John Piercy hopes to thrash out his future with manager Mark McGhee today so that he can stay happily married to Albion.

Piercy wants longer than the three-month contract he has been offered from July to prove he is worth keeping in the First Division next season.

The former Tottenham utility player, who gets married on Saturday, said: "I have got a meeting with the manager. Three months is not really what I want to sign. It's not what I had in mind. I was hoping for another year.

"I don't think I deserve more than that, because I haven't played as much as other people, but if I can have a year without any injuries and get back in tip-top shape then I don't see too much of a problem."

Piercy, from Eastbourne, is confident his grievance can be resolved.

"I have got no thoughts in my mind about leaving the club," he said.

"I love it here. The gaffer has been brilliant for the club and for me. I think he just wants me to improve my fitness, which is fair enough."

Piercy joined Albion from Spurs on a free transfer towards the start of last season.

The 24-year-old, who can play in midfield or up front, made eight starts in Albion's promotion season and his 15th appearance as a substitute in Sunday's final.
