Jason Koumas has insisted he is not interested in returning to West Brom.Jason Koumas has insisted he is not interested in returning to West Brom.
The Wales midfielder was shipped out on loan to Cardiff after falling out with Baggies chief Bryan Robson and has taken on a new lease of life with The Bluebirds.
Koumas raised his stock in the Welsh capital with a stunning winner against Leeds on Saturday and he is looking for Cardiff to make his stay in the Principality permanent.
"I do not want to hear from West Brom," said Koumas. "I do not want to go back there.
"I want to stay with Cardiff and make it permanent.
"I wasn't playing at West Brom and if you are not playing, you're not going to be enjoying yourself."
Cardiff boss Dave Jones has turned the club's fortunes around and Saturday's win at Leeds has lifted them to fifth.
Cameron Jerome has been a key player for the club this term, with his dazzling displays catching the eye of Premiership scouts.
Cardiff could find themselves fielding enquiries in January, but Jerome has no plans to move on from Ninian Park.
"I'm not ready to play in The Premiership," said Jerome.
"Of course I'm keen to play in The Premiership, it's a top league - the best in the world, I think. However, I really don't believe I'd be ready to move into The Premiership just now.
"If I was to go to a big, big club, I don't think I'd get much of a look-in. I'd probably be stuck in the reserves for a while.
"Besides, I'm happy at Cardiff. I'm playing week-in, week-out."
