Peace rejects Madjid claims

Published Add your comment

West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace insists his absence from transfer talks was not the reason Madjid Bougherra snubbed the club in favour of a transfer to Rangers.

The Algeria defender signed for the UEFA Cup finalists in a £2.5million deal last Wednesday having at one stage looked certain to join the Baggies from Charlton.

Bougherra, 25, claimed that a major reason for his decision to shun West Brom was Peace´s failure to be present at the training ground at a crucial stage of negotiations. But Peace said: "It is a nonsense for anyone to suggest a transfer cannot be processed simply because I am not in attendance."
