Bakary Sako has ended his Albion career after only four months after he rejoined Crystal Palace. 

The forward was released by Palace at the end of last season and joined Albion back in October until the end of this campaign. 

But he has now linked up with former Baggies boss Roy Hodgson after the Premier League club agreed to take on his short-term deal. 

"Bakary has not played as much football for us as he would have wanted and was eager to take this opportunity in the Premier League," said Albion Head Coach Darren Moore. 

“We decided it was in everyone’s best interests for Bakary to move on. It will allow us to look elsewhere to add to our forward options, which we are working hard to resolve.

“I would like to thank Bakary for his efforts during his stay with us. He has been terrific to work with and we wish him well at Palace.”

In total, Sako started three games for the club, plus a three subsitute appearances, scoring once.
