West Brom boss Tony Mowbray remains hopeful of hanging onto on-loan Nancy striker Marc-Antoine Fortune.

After they were officially relegated yesterday, Mowbray told the WBA website: "There is hope.

"We have a good opportunity. He is a good man and the grass isn't always greener on the other side. He is at a club where his talents are appreciated and he knows he will play.

"If Premier League teams are after him, he could go and be a number three or four striker and sit on their bench. It depends on what the boy wants to do. He can stay with us and score lots of goals next season and, hopefully, win lots of games.

"But we all have choices in life and he will make his."
