Sky Sports reports that Blackburn Rovers have firmly denied that they have made any bid whatsoever for the Wigan Athletic midfield Jason Koumas. There had been a series of press speculation in England that Blackburn manager Mark Hughes, a self-admitted admirer of the Welsh international, was keen on signing the player with whom he had worked when he was in charge of the Wales national team not so long ago, but Hughes has now dismissed any such speculation.
The Blackburn Rovers manager told The Daily Star:
There’s obviously speculation because obviously I’ve worked with him before I think he’s a talented boy, but we’ve not made a bid for Jason Koumas.
Yet it would still be hard to completely eradicate such rumors. Koumas is one of the better players in a relegation threatened Wigan side and there is no doubt that the player himself must be considering a move to one of the bigger clubs in the English Premier League.
