Hull set for Koumas bid

Hull set for Koumas bid

Wigan Athletic and Wales attacking midfield player Jason Koumas is reported to be the subject of a £3 million bid from newly promoted Hull City

Hull boss, Phil Brown, has been given a £20 million transfer kitty in a bid to make the Tigers a success in the Premier League and this is the 2nd time this month they have been linked with a Latics player after apparently bidding £750,000 for Ryan Taylor.

Koumas was disappointing last season following his big money move to the JJB from West Brom and Latics boss Steve Bruce may well be open to offers for the enigmatic former Tranmere man, whether £3 million is enough to make Bruce listen though is another question.

I am sure Bruce will cut his losses on Koumas

Koumas isn't a bad player he just needs to be playing regular, and he hasn't under bruce. Before that none of the team was

I think he has potential for us.

I am a big fan of Koumas and sadly he was disappointing last season. I think he will come good if given the chance. I think we should keep him because Valencia stated that he is to spend just 1 more year at the JJB and I believe Koumas would be in the same class as Valencia by then.

Koumas laid on that fantastic pass to Heskey that got a point against Chelsea. (And what a great strike that was, too.) I reckon he's worth sticking with for at least another season.

I agree he is a quality player. The target for us this season is europe, but i do think if we do get into europe this season valencia will stay. So we need players like valencia, koumas, palaicas 'cn't spell', sharner, kirkland and melchiot and others The future is bright for us thats for sure

How much did you pay for Koumas? I think he's a quality midfielder.

Keep him for next season. He's worth every penny. If i was a defender i wouldn't like to defend him Very tricky

Honestly if he is the same as he is for Wales he would come in handy. He might be the answer to the goals scoring problem and he would give us options. Valencia was great this season but he lacked goals and Koumas can score. I don't know why Brucy didn't try 4-5-1 with Koumas suporting row to Heskey in some must gat point games.
