Simon Cox is staying with West Bromwich Albion.

The Mirror says Cox has rejected a chance to join Bournemouth on loan.

Cox is wanted by the promotion-chasing League One club but has no interested in dropping down from the Premier League to the third tier of English football.

"Simon has two or three Championship clubs in for him and wants to play at the highest level possible," said Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury.
