West Brom transfer news: James Morrison in talks, while Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe are released
Out-of-contract duo Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe will not be offered new deals by West Bromwich Albion, it’s been confirmed.
Sessegnon, who will turn 32 on June 1, made 92 appearances for Albion, scoring eight goals, since arriving at the club from Sunderland in 2013.
Anichebe announced on Twitter earlier this week that he would be leaving. The striker played 63 times for the Baggies and found the net nine times after joining the club during the same transfer window as Sessegnon.
Head coach Tony Pulis told the club’s official website: “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.”
The Baggies, however, remain in talks with James Morrison – who is the club’s longest serving player – about extending his stay at The Hawthorns.
Morrison’s contract is set to expire in the summer. He has been with West Brom for nine years, making over 275 appearances during this time.
