West Brom return pleases Marc-Antoine Fortune


Striker Marc-Antoine Fortune is happy to be back at West Bromwich Albion, but insists that he does not regret trying his luck at Celtic.

The 29-year-old spent the second half of the 2008-09 season on loan at The Hawthorns, before opting to join the Bhoys just over a year ago.

However, Fortune returned south of the border before the transfer window slammed shut at the end of last month and is looking forward to a second chance to impress with the Baggies.

He told the Birmingham Mail:"Was I close to staying? We talked at the time but we couldn't find a solution and there were some Premier League clubs and also Celtic, who came in for me.

"I'm a footballer, I like a challenge and went to Celtic, but I never regretted it.

"Celtic were a big club and I played well up there, though I'm glad to come to West Brom.

"It's good to be back. I had a good time here, with some good memories."
