Martinez accepts Koumas on outer with Wigan

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is prepared to let midfielder Jason Koumas leave the club on loan. The former West Brom player, who has fallen out of favour at the DW Stadium, has been linked with a return to The Hawthorns.

"We have had clear interest from two teams for Jason," said Martinez.

"I think Jason probably needs that, he needs to play games.

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

"It would probably be a good opportunity for Jason to regain that match fitness, so we will see how that develops, but for the moment there is nothing to mention."

Koumas joined Wigan in a £5.3million deal from the Baggies in the summer of 2007 but now appears well down Martinez's pecking order.
