FIFA to address Nyom selection issue

Defender misses second game of 2017

ALLAN Nyom is unavailable for selection in today’s Premier League fixture at Tottenham Hotspur as the club await international clearance from Cameroonian Football Federation.

The Albion defender has been at the centre of a dispute between the club and Cameroon following his non-selection for the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Baggies have made strenuous efforts all week to clarify Nyom’s eligibility to play at White Hart Lane.

Director of Football Administration Richard Garlick confirmed that Nyom will miss his second game of January but was hopeful the dispute will be resolved soon.

He said: “Unfortunately Cameroon have not given us clearance for Allan to play at Spurs but FIFA will meet to discuss his availability early next week, after which we hope for as speedy a resolution as possible.

“It is our position that Allan should be available for club football during the championships.”
