Howe told the Daily Echo on Wednesday...

"I will sit down with Wes first thing tomorrow and have a chat about how he feels. I will also convey our feelings as a football club and what we think and we will take it from there.

"We have to do what is best for this club. Wes has only got 18 months left on his contract so decisions will have to be made. We will sit down with Wes and see which way he wants to go."

"His ability as a player has never been in doubt. He is a goalscorer and a very good athlete. He can certainly play so the fact he went to Blackpool and did well was not a surprise...'
