Baggies end Sakho pursuit

West Bromwich Albion have reportedly dropped their interest in Mamadou Sakho ahead of the winter transfer window. The France international has yet to kick the ball for Liverpool this season.

Sakho, 26, has fallen out-of-favour under Jurgen Klopp ever since his poor behaviour during the pre-season tour of the United States.

The central defender was tipped to pursue a fresh challenge away from Anfield in the summer but he opted otherwise, and this has seen him being banished to the Under-23 side.

Recent speculation suggested the Baggies could lodge a temporary deal for the Frenchman in January, but according to ESPN, Tony Pulis has decided against the move.

The Baggies boss is deemed to have watched Sakho in the Under-23 clash against Derby County where he was unimpressed by the centre-back's performance.

Sakho is currently on the radar of several French clubs, and a route back to Ligue 1 looks a distinct possibility in the New Year.
