Martinez: Wigan star exit possible

Published Add your comment

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has revealed midfielder Jason Koumas could leave the club on loan.

The former West Brom player, who has fallen out of favour at the DW Stadium, has been linked with a return to The Hawthorns.

Martinez admits there has been interest in the 30-year-old ex-Wales international, whose contract expires in the summer, and a move could be arranged. "We have had clear interest from two teams for Jason," said Martinez.

"I think Jason probably needs that, he needs to play games.

"He has been in a mode over the last three years where he hasn't played enough football.

"It would probably be a good opportunity for Jason to regain that match fitness, so we will see how that develops, but for the moment there is nothing to mention."

Koumas joined Wigan in a £5.3million deal from the Baggies in the summer of 2007 but now appears well down Martinez's pecking order.

He has made just eight Barclays Premier League appearances this term and featured only in the FA Cup since December.

With the main transfer window having closed, a permanent deal cannot be arranged until the summer but loans to Football League clubs are still permitted.
