Diomansy Kamara has warned Jeremy Peace that he still intends to leave Albion despite the club turning down a £4.5million bid from Fulham and rejecting his transfer request.
Willie McKay, Kamara’s representative, claims that the Londoner’s bid for the Senegal international was given Tony Mowbray’s blessing but brushed away by the Albion chairman.
Kamara then submitted a transfer request, which was turned down by Albion yesterday. But McKay has revealed that Kamara still wants to leave the Hawthorns, preferably with the minimum of fuss.
And he warned Albion they were otherwise facing the prospect of pricing Kamara out of a move and being left with an unhappy player.
“I’m not really sure what West Brom want for Diomansy but Fulham have offered £4.5million cash up front and it’s been knocked back,” said McKay. “Fulham have named their price – I think it’s fair, Diomansy thinks it’s fair and, more to the point, Tony Mowbray thinks it’s fair.
“But one person didn’t and because of that everything is being held up with what we consider to be a fair deal.
“Diomansy has wanted to leave for some time and West Brom have known about that. We’re fully aware that he has two years left on his contract but none of us expected West Brom to not be back in the Premiership.
“He’s not a young lad anymore, he’s a full international and he’s been given an opportunity to play in the Premier League. Naturally he wants to play at the highest level – who wouldn’t?
“There’s only one Premiership club who have pursued Diomansy this far and nobody else, here or abroad, has shown any further interest.”
