West Brom have abandoned their interest in signing former Manchester United and Aston Villa midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba on medical grounds.
Albion boss Roberto Di Matteo was hopeful of landing the Cameroon international after holding talks with the player this week.
Djemba-Djemba, who is currently with BK Odense, watched Albion in action in Tuesday night's friendly at Doncaster.
But the club has released a statement confirming: "West Brom have decided not to pursue their interest in Odense midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba."
It continued: "He travelled to England to meet the club earlier this week.
"But, following medical tests and further talks between the clubs, Albion have decided not to proceed with a deal."
It is unclear what the precise problem is but West Brom clearly felt it was too great a risk to take a chance on the player who made only a limited impact at Old Trafford and Villa Park.
