Birmingham Mail: West Brom Decide Against Vaughan

Birmingham Mail: West Brom Decide Against Vaughan

David Vaughan will not be moving to West Bromwich Albion, according to the Birmingham Mail.

Boss Roy Hodgson decided against signing the 28-year-old after meeting with officials on Monday.

The former Blackpool midfielder left the club in June after rejecting a bumper contract offer to stay put at Bloomfield Road following relegation to the Championship.

Vaughan had a number of Premier League teams looking at him throughout the second half of the 2010/11 campaign.

The frontrunners were always Albion and Sunderland.

However, now that the Baggies have pulled out of the deal - strangely after the Welshman met medical staff at the Hawthorns - it seems options are slightly sparse.

Clubs such as Everton were also mentioned in the close season but reports have died down recently, with Sunderland now looking the only real option available to Vaughan and his family at this moment in time.

West Brom pulling out of the running may spark slight excitement within some quarters of the Fylde Coast that the player could again play in tangerine, but that possibility remains extremely unlikely.
