    Lee Hughes has, today, told the WBA board that he is not prepared to accept their contract offer and the board have retaliated and informed the football world that 'Lee Hughes is up for grabs'.

    From a Harriers point of view this is a double edged sword in that, OK we will receive part of the transfer fee but it may also mean that he may not be playing in tomorrow's friendly at Aggborough.

    Hughsie left the Harriers in 1997 in a 350,000 deal and has gone on to score 79 goals for the Baggies in 137 games.

    In the past he has attracted attention from Arsenal, Middlesboro and Coventry City when they were a Premier Club.

    During the close season he has had Everton, Leicester and Charlton from the Premier showing an interest and Birmingham City, Manchester City and again Coventry waiting in the wings.

    Personally I think he will stay because he loves the Albion too much and this is a bit of wheeling and dealing by his agent.
