West Brom boss Bryan Robson has been handed a hammer blow with the news that Argentinian midfielder Matias Almeyda is reconsidering his decision to move to The Hawthorns.
The 31-year-old had been expected to jet into the Midlands in the next few days but this has now been cast into doubt because of ''family problems.''
Robson had previously been convinced that Almeyda would be lending his considerable talents to West Brom's battle to beat the drop.
West Brom's worst fears have been realised with transfer target Matias Almeyda having confirmed his retirement from football.
Almeyda had indicated at the weekend that his move to the Baggies could be off because of family problems in his native Argentina.
Now the 31-year-old, who had been set to join Albion on a free transfer from Italian club Brescia, has decided to hang up his boots.
