West Brom's club record move for West Ham striker Diafra Sakho has fallen through.

The 26-year-old had been expected to complete a switch to The Hawthorns on Thursday but the transfer has collapsed as he will not be fit for the start of the season.

Albion were prepared to pay around £15million for Sakho but, while he has not failed a medical, the Baggies were reluctant to spend the significant sum without any guarantees he would be ready when they needed him.

West Bromwich Albion have confirmed the departures of out-of-contract duo Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe.

Sessegnon, who is soon to turn 32, made a total of 92 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals, since arriving at The Hawthorns in 2013.

Anichebe, 28, made 63 outings for the Baggies and found the net nine times following his arrival at the club in the same summer window.

The two lads worked really hard for me and were as good as gold. Everybody at the Club wishes them all the best in their future careers.

– Tony Pulis, head coach

Meanwhile, the Club remain in discussions with James Morrison regarding a new contract.
