Nicolas Aneka has left West Bromwich Albion after playing one Premier League match for the Baggies and could now retire from football completely, according to Telegraph Sport.

The 34-year-old - who previously played for the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Arsenal - has reportedly been considering his future for several days now.

It's believed that West Brom manager Steve Clarke attempted to persuade the former France international to change his mind, but Anelka appears unlikely to play for the club again after opting not to train on Thursday.

The Telegraph report that there was no bust-up between the player and any member of the Baggies' staff.

Anelka featured in West Brom's 1-0 defeat to Southampton on Saturday and had looked sharp in pre-season, but the Baggies may need to consider signing a new striker before the transfer window closes as a replacement for the Frenchman.
