Celtic join race to sign Welsh wizard

According to several reports today, Celtic have joined Blackburn Rovers in the race to sign Wigan Athletic midfielder Jason Koumas.

The Welsh international has found himself out of favour under new Latics boss Steve Bruce and he is rumoured to be growing increasingly frustrated at the current situation.

Koumas only joined Wigan during the summer from Championship side West Brom after the Baggies failed to earn promotion to the Premier League. Wigan spent £5.3 million the player in the summer and it is unclear wheter or not Bruce is prepared to let him go.

I have been surprised by the lack of first team football Koumas has received under Bruce. Koumas in my view, without doubt, one of Wigan's best players and I find it hard to believe Bruce isn't playing him. I think He may opt to join Blackburn if he has the chance, mainly because Mark Hughes.
