Fortune seeks West Brom extension

Marc-Antoine Fortune wants to open negotiations over his future at West Bromwich Albion – as Middlesbrough prepare to offer him a fresh start away from the Hawthorns.

Fortune will miss three of Albion’s final four games of the season because of the suspension for his red card against Southampton at the weekend and is now seeking clarification on his position with Albion’s sporting and technical director Richard Garlick.

The 31-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has been given no indication of whether the club wish to extend his three-year stay.

That has alerted his former manager Tony Mowbray at the Riverside and he is understood to be interested in signing the striker on a free transfer in the summer, if Albion decide against offering a contract extension.

Fortune is eager to stay with the Premier League club and believes his unavailability for the next three games provides the ideal window for negotiations over a potential new deal.

“For the moment I am still waiting for something from the club. The fans ask me on Facebook or other social media, but I always answer that I would be really pleased to stay here and I am just waiting for the offer from the club,” he said.

“Now it is up to them and I am still waiting. I talked with the manager and I said if he doesn't want that to be my last game they have to sign me. I think I have done well in my three years here so we will see what happens.

“They know my position. I want to stay and if the club want me to stay we will have to discuss it, but it is up to the club.”
