Mulumbu ignores ‘speculation’

The Albion hardman continues to find himself at the centre of

rumours suggesting he will soon be on his way to Italy. Serie A

outfit Fiorentina are understood to have expressed an interest and

are planning an imminent raid. Some reports suggest Mulumbu has

already been in contact with the Viola and is waiting on an

agreement to be reached with West Brom. The Baggies, however, have

stressed on a regular basis that they are reluctant to discuss a

deal, with Roy Hodgson confident the Congo international will stay.

Mulumbu is keen to avoid discussing the issue for now, with his

focus locked purely on West Brom’s preparations for the 2011/12

campaign. “I do not want to speculate on things,” he said. “I am

looking forward to the start of pre-season. “I am not talking about

transfers.”
