Graham Dorrans: Happy to stay if has assurances over playing

Dorrans came close to departing the Hawthorns during the winter transfer window after asking to leave the club.

The Scotland international ended up staying and has won his place back in Steve Clarke's plans and admits he is happy to stay as long as he is playing regularly.

"I did have a chat with the manager (before Christmas). Everybody wants to be playing and I wasn't playing as much as I would have liked," Dorrans said.

"Had the opportunity come along to go and get games somewhere, we'd have looked at it, as the gaffer mentioned.

"But it didn't, I worked away and got myself back in the side and that's where I want to be."

Dorrans is refusing to rush into any decision on his future saying: "I need to wait and see. "I will get through the next five games and see what the summer holds. But I'm playing every week so I'm quite happy at the moment.

"I just wanted to play football. It wasn't to move back to Scotland. Nothing has changed.

"My views were that I want to be playing every week and I've still got the same views. If I can do that I'm happy, if not then I'm not happy, just like anybody else."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
