The 27-year-old has been open about his desire to stay at The Hawthorns but has claimed that he will wait for the Premier League outfit to offer him a new deal as he enters the final 18 months of his current agreement.
"I still have two-and-a-half years with the option year," Brunt told The Mirror. "I have to do my job playing football and earning that. Otherwise it looks like I'm begging for a contract."
Brunt has been on the sidelines since last month after picking up a hamstring injury.
