Koumas could leave Latics

Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce has hinted that he would be willing to allow midfielder Jason Koumas to leave the JJB Stadium for the right price. The 28-year-old Wales international has failed to start a Premier League match since the 4-1 defeat at Bolton in early December, with Bruce preferring to use Michael Brown, Wilson Palacios and Luis Antonio Valencia in midfield. Blackburn Rovers and Celtic have been linked with the former Cardiff City, Tranmere Rovers and West Brom star, who cost the Latics £5.3million last summer. Bruce is looking to recoup most of that money, telling the Daily Star: "Obviously I've changed things round a little since I arrived in November. "Everyone has their price, including Jason, but at the moment there's been no contact with anyone."
