No future for West Brom pair

hawthornsWest Brom have told Jerome Thomas and Gonzalo Jara Reyes they can leave the club as they are not in the plans of Steve Clarke.

Free agent Thomas has struggled for first-team football at the Hawthorns in the past season under Steve Clarke and even spent time away on loan at Championship side Leeds United.

As a result, he will be allowed to depart on a Bosman-free transfer along with Jara Reyes, who has reached his one-year option period which will not be taken up.

Sporting & Technical Director Richard Garlick said on the club’s website: “Both Jerome and Gonzalo have played important roles in helping the club reach and stay in the Premier League since joining us four years ago.

“They have found first-team opportunities harder to come by this season and had spells out on loan. They both leave with our best wishes.”

Meanwhile, Steven Reid and Zoltan Gera are waiting to see if they will be kept on despite both failing to make enough appearances to guarantee another year.

Striker Marc-Antoine Fortune is out of contract at the end of next month but could be offered another 12 months, while Albion must decide whether to turn Macedonian defender Goarn Popov’s loan spell from Dynamo Kyiv into a permanent arrangement.
