Artmedia Bratislava star Jan Kozak claims West Brom are keen to sign him.West Brom are closing in on the loan capture of Slovakian international Jan Kozak, after the player insisted Bryan Robson had been impressed with him during a trial period.
The 25-year-old Artmedia Bratislava star has been proving his worth at The Hawthorns, as revealed by skysports.com, and Robson is now ready to increase his efforts to land Kozak for the remainder of the season.
The Baggies are also mulling over whether to offer a deal to Burkina Faso captain Badou Kere, but Kozak is more certain about his future in The Premiership.
"I have a really good feeling from my test in West Bromwich," said Kozak.
"Robson called me away to him after four days and said he wants me in his team."
Meanwhile Robson has stated he is yet to receive any offers for unsettled striker Robert Earnshaw.
The Welsh international is keen to leave The Hawthorns, having had two transfer requests turned down, but the Robson has told the former Cardiff man he must continue to do his best for The Baggies despite doubts surrounding his future.
"I have had no firm approach about Earnshaw. As far as I am concerned, he is under contract for another couple of years," said Robson.
"Until we get an offer which is suitable to the club, he has to get on with his job."
