ALBION boss Oscar Garcia is poised for talks about his future with chairman Tony Bloom amid reports he has offered to resign.

The Seagulls refused to make any comment last night on suggestions Oscar has told the club he wants to leave.

The Spaniard, in the first year of a three-year contract, had no contact with any Board member yesterday as Albion were knocked out of the Championship play-offs by Derby County.

That is expected to change in the next 24 hours. Oscar is set for pivotal discussions with Bloom.

The Argus understands the head coach has been dissatisfied for some time with certain aspects of the set-up behind the scenes. These include Albion's transfer dealings and the budget for strengthening the squad.

It is the second end-of-season in a row that Albion have been hit by managerial uncertainty following Gus Poyet's suspension and eventual sacking for gross misconduct last summer.
