Sako departs Albion

ALBION have agreed a deal which sees Bakary Sako join his former club Crystal Palace.

Bakary left the Premier League club in the summer and penned an agreement with Albion at the start of October for the remainder of this season.

But following an approach from Palace, Albion have agreed to release Bakary from his contract and allowed his return to Selhurst Park.

He has started three games for Albion, against Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet Championship and Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup, which featured his only goal for the Club.

Head Coach Darren Moore said: “Bakary has not played as much football for us as he would have wanted and was eager to take this opportunity in the Premier League.

“We decided it was in everyone’s best interests for Bakary to move on. It will allow us to look elsewhere to add to our forward options, which we are working hard to resolve.

“I would like to thank Bakary for his efforts during his stay with us. He has been terrific to work with and we wish him well at Palace.”
