West Brom boss Clarke: Fortune must wait for contract talks

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke says it's too soon to consider new contract talks with Marc-Antoine Fortune.

Fortune's contract expires this summer and although the 31-year-old will miss the next three games after a red card last weekend, Clarke said that will have no bearing on his thinking.

"He's got a chance of playing again this season because his suspension will be three games," he told the Express and Star.

"He is one of a number of players that we'll need a decision on his contract.

"I said a few weeks' ago that what happened between now and the end of the season wouldn't have any bearing on the decisions that I make.

"I'll sit down with Richard Garlick (sporting and technical director) and the chairman in the weeks coming up and we'll decide how we're going to shape the squad."
