Makukula declines loan move to West Brom

Makukula declines loan move to West Brom

Benfica striker Ariza Makukula has ruled out a loan move to Premier League club West Bromwich Albion.
The two clubs had agreed a deal for the 27-year-old Congo-born player, but he didn't like West Brom's terms.
"There was an agreement between West Brom and Benfica but I went to the club and I didn't like their offer," Makukula told the Maisfutebole Web site on Thursday. "I respect the club but I didn't want to be part of their project.
"I wanted to have a look at my contract. The coach was friendly, the club is well-organized, but I don't think it's a good fit for me."
Makukula said he intends to leave Benfica, where he has failed to secure a regular place since Spanish coach Quique Flores took over this season, and is considering other offers.
