JA­SON KOUMAS re­vealed Tran­mere were the only club he would have ended his twoyear ex­ile from the game for af­ter sign­ing a 12-month deal.

The 33-year-old had been with­out a club since leav­ing Wi­gan in 2011 but re­turned to train with Rovers, the club who he made his name with, in July.

“This has been on my mind for a while and Tran­mere was, and is, the only place I would have come back to,” said Koumas.

“I wouldn’t have gone any­where else. It’s not about the money, I’m here for one rea­son, to play for Tran­mere again and to do a job for the club.

“One thing I al­ways wanted to do was re­turn here and play, but I didn’t want to do it at a stage where I was past it.

“The first 12 months out of the game was some­thing I wanted to do.When I fin­ished at Wi­gan I’d had enough. I was tired of it, I had a few in­juries and I just wanted to get away from it.

“It was longer than I planned, but over the last 12 months I’ve been itch­ing to get back. I’ve been watch­ing football ev­ery week.”
