Club statement: James Tarkowski

15 January 2016

The Club has issued a statement ahead of tonight's Sky Bet Championship match with Burnley at Griffin Park.

James Tarkowski will be the subject of internal disciplinary action after telling Head Coach Dean Smith that he did not wish to play against Burnley in tonight’s Sky Bet Championship match.

Following discussions with Smith, Tarkowski declared himself unavailable for the fixture despite being selected in the starting line-up. As a result of these actions, he will be disciplined by the club.

Any resulting sanction will remain confidential and the Club will make no further comment on potential punishment.

Tarkowski has been the subject of transfer bids during the current January Transfer Window but none have matched the Club's valuation of the player. In fact, all recent bids have been substantially lower than one that was rejected last year.
