Wolverhampton Wanderers have offered a new one-year deal to young midfielder Kevin O'Connor, while team-mate Tomasz Frankowski has been omitted from Poland's national squad for the World Cup in Germany next month.
The striker, who has yet to score for Wolves, has been told by Polish manager Pawel Janas to put his feet up over the summer and recuperate.
"Tomasz is exhausted," he said. "He hasn't scored for so long and I trust he can rebuild his shattered confidence."
Whereas Frankowski is dejected at being dropped from the Polish national squad, Albion's Tomasz Kuszczak is suitably elated at his call-up.
The 24-year-old has usurped Liverpool's Jerzy Dudek and is likely to be behind Artur Boruc in the pecking order.
"I will fight for the No 1 spot in the national team," said Kuszczak. "It will be good to go, but I don't just want to sit on the bench.
"It will be tough but I think the coach is going to give us all a chance to impress and why shouldn't I be No 1? I am No 1 at a good club in Albion and now I want it for Poland." ..SUPL:
