Wigan happy for Jason Koumas to leave on loan

Wigan midfielder Jason Koumas
Koumas has had limited first-team opportunities this season

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has said midfielder Jason Koumas may leave to join another club on loan.

Koumas has fallen out of favour at the DW Stadium, making only eight Premier League appearances this season, and has been linked with a return to West Brom.

The 30-year-old left the Hawthorns for Wigan for a fee of £5.3m in 2007.

"We have had clear interest from two teams, he needs to play games. It would be a good opportunity for Jason to regain match fitness," said Martinez.

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

A permanent deal cannot be arranged until the summer as the transfer window has now closed but loans to Football League clubs are still allowed.

Koumas had a spell on loan at Cardiff from West Brom during the 2005/2006 campaign.
