Ugo a no go

Ugo a no go

Baggies boss Bryan Robson had been keen to add the experienced former Aston Villa defender to his squad but talks have broken down over the players’ personal terms.

Albion have been chasing Ehiogu for around three weeks and the deal had been called off twice before with Boro not wanting to let him go due to injuries and then they did not want him to go in a loan deal.

Robson was interviewed after the Reading defeat in midweek and gave the impression that a deal was close to being agreed with Ugo, but early on Wednesday evening Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace confirmed that the deal was now dead.

Peace said, “We’ve done everything we can to make this deal happen but it’s just not possible.”

“The goalposts keep being moved and enough is enough.”

“I’ll be speaking with Bryan Robson to discuss alternative targets should he wish to pursue them.”
