Gabriel Tamas: West Brom defender must wait on new contract

The 29-year-old Romania international is in the final year of his contract but Albion have the option of a 12-month extension in their favour.

The Baggies have already opened contract talks with centre-back Gareth McAuley and striker Shane Long, and Tamas indicated last week that he wants to remain at the Hawthorns for the rest of his career.

However, West Brom head coach Steve Clarke said: "Gabby is one of a number of players where we will probably look at the situation at the end of the season.

"For now, there are no talks with Gabby. We have talks ongoing with one or two players just now - but you can't talk to everyone at the same time.

"Gabby will be addressed at the end of the season."

Pressed on the futures of McAuley and Long, Clarke said: "We are still talking. Richard Garlick [Albion's technical director] went to Ireland to speak to one of Shane's advisors, but I don't know how it went because I haven't spoken to him."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
