Koren closing in on future decision

The 29-year-old was released by West Brom back in May after making

124 appearances for the Baggies. And after appearing for his

national side during the World Cup, Koren is keen to sort out his

future before the start of the new season. Koren has been linked

with Premier League clubs Wolves and Blackpool as well as

Championship side Leicester and SPL giants Celtic. Serie A club

Cesena and Spanish oufit Real Sociadad have also expressed a firm

interest. Agent Zoran Krneta told skysports.com: “Robi want to be

back in full time training and to link up with a new manager and

team-mates. “We believe we have all our final offers in now and its

down to Robi to make a decision on where he feels comfortable

moving his family to and working with. “He’s been working hard on

his fitness but is aware that the season is imminent and want to

get on with it.” Krneta is hopeful that a deal for the experienced

star will be sorted out by the end of the weekend and would like

the player to possibly stay in England where he has spent the last

three-years. “We hope to have things sorted in the next 48 hours if

it all possible. I would like to see him stay in England as he has

built himself a name here, but Serie A is an attractive option for

any player”.
