Djemba-Djemba blasts West Brom over failed transfer bid

Eric Djemba-Djemba is fuming at West Bromwich Albion after he claims they tried to sign him for a lower transfer fee. The Baggies had agreed a £1million fee with the midfielder's club OB Odense, but the 29 year old man claims they offered a reduced price after suggesting he had a knee problem.

"I'm really mad at West Brom. They tried to cheat OB and tried to get me cheaper. It is not fair," the Cameroon international told the News of the World.

"OB had demanded a price that West Brom had accepted. But they changed the price. That is not right, especially as it's a lie that I still have problems after my injury.

"I have been examined by several physicians in Denmark, who have all said it looks good.

"And why would OB send me to England if they knew there was something wrong with me?"
