Former Arsenal midfielder set to undergo West Brom medical

Former Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby is believed to be set to undergo a medical with West Bromwich Albion following his release, according to reports from the Metro.

The 29-year-old was let go after picking up a huge number of injuries which eventually brought his development at the Emirates to a standstill.

However, he has now open talks with West Brom manager Tony Pulis as he edges closer to remaining in the English top flight.

Diaby only managed to register 125 appearances for the Gunners despite spending a total of nine years at the club.

He was previously tipped as the perfect candidate to replace Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira, but after suffering a total of 42 injuries in his career, he failed to live up to expectations.

The French anchorman is also being eyed by MLS side FC Dallas, but he is likely to remain in the Premier League in hopes of proving his ability.
