Doumbia Favours Albion Move

Doumbia Favours Albion Move

It was only the other day that the Tongo Doumbie deal was said to be dead in the water, but apparently he favours a move to our neck of the woods.

The Rennes midfielder has apparently turned down Arsenal and is over in England today for a medical at the club after a fee was agreed.

Quoted on Sky Sports, he has apparently said.

'I have no regrets about leaving Rennes, I go quietly and with a smile on my face, I have no grudges against the club. I felt a lot of desire from them (Albion), obviously it is less glamorous than Arsenal, but I will be able to continue my progress. The Premier League thrills me and I hope this is the beginning of a new adventure.'

Ok if he is genuinely talking about us, I'll forgive the 'less glamorous' crack (even though impartial observers would agree, but isn't it refreshing to hear a player showing he cares more about his chances of playing instead of the big money move and earning thousands for sitting on a bench.

Well I find it refreshing anyway.
