Anelka to leave West Brom

Premier League

London - Banned French striker Nicolas Anelka on Friday revealed he will leave West Bromwich Albion with immediate effect.

Anelka was due to start a five-match suspension after being punished for his controversial “quenelle” goal celebration but instead he has decided to terminate his contract with the Premier League club.

“Following discussions between the club and me, proposals have been made to me that I rejoined the group under certain conditions,” Anelka wrote on his official Twitter account.

“I cannot accept. Wishing to keep my integrity, so I decided to free myself and to terminate the contract linking me with West Bromwich Albion until 2014 as of now.”
