Baggies reject Koumas transfer request

http://www.wba.premiumtv.co.uk/page/...539376,00.html

ALBION have 'flatly refused' a written transfer request from midfielder
Jason Koumas.

After intense media speculation, the Baggies have confirmed the Welsh
international this afternoon (Friday) formally asked to leave the club.

But Albion have rejected Koumas' request out of hand, insisting they are
more concerned with getting the 24-year-old to put pen to paper on a new
contract.

Koumas joined the Hawthorns outfit for Ł2.5million from Tranmere in August
2002 and still has two years left to run on his current deal.

Chairman Jeremy Peace said: "We have received a written transfer request
from Jason which we have turned down.

"We're interested in getting him to sign a new contract which suits both him
and the football club - not selling him."

Boss Gary Megson added: "We want Jason to stay here and continue progressing as a player, as he has done during almost two years with us.

"His transfer request has been flatly refused."

Why would Koumas want to leave? Things are looking very good for WBA at the moment with premiership football to look forward to and IMO, a good chance of staying up.

Well he doesn't get on with Megson.
Koumas likes to play football and Megson has different ideas about the "not so" beautiful game!

Well I think this is agent talk. But it does come at a funny time 2 days into pre-season training. Maybe he came back unfit and GM bollocked him?

But if JK does want away and we have said no, he has 2 years left on his contract then there could be certain things going to happen.
Regardless this has alerted other clubs to the fact that we may listen to bids for him.

If GM plays him still, (before he has not played any player wanting away) then JK will probably try and play out of his skin so that in the Jan window another club comes in and bids for him, with 18 months left on his contract we will probably sell him.
If GM doesn't play him we will definetly sell him at Xmas time.

If GM is sacked JK may stay.

Of course JK may declare undenying Love for GM.

Yeah and pigs may fly

Koumas signs new Baggies deal
JASON Koumas has handed Albion a huge pre-Premiership boost by a signing a
new, long-term deal.



The Welsh international today (Thursday) put pen to paper on an improved
four-year contract which commits him to the Baggies until June 2008.



Koumas played a key role in Albion bouncing straight back to the Premiership
last term by plundering ten goals from midfield and boss Gary Megson said:
"We're really pleased Jason has signed this contract.



"Hopefully, this will enable him to get his head straight and concentrate
solely on his football.



"Jason needs to make the next step in his career. He's got to become
consistent, more of a team player, put more workrate into his game while
keeping the fantastic ability he undoubtedly has.



"The contract he has signed will give him and his family security and, in
return, we shall be placing more demands on Jason to become the finished
article as opposed to just a promising young player.



"This contract should enable Jason to concentrate purely on improving as a
player and helping West Brom improve as a club."



Koumas' decision to commit his long-term future to the club means months of
negotiations between the club and the player's agent have borne fruit.



Chairman Jeremy Peace added: "We have continually stated we were only
interested in Jason signing a new deal and not selling him so we're
delighted he's put pen to paper.



"Both parties have been willing to compromise which has enabled us to reach
an agreement which suits everyone."



Since arriving from Tranmere in a Ł2.5million deal in August 2002, Koumas
has made 71 appearances, plus ten as substitute, and scored 14 goals.
