Former Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby has passed a medical at West Bromwich Albion according to reports.

 

The Frenchman is a free agent after he was released by Arsenal during the summer following a succession of injury-ravaged seasons with the Gunners, with the 29-year-old suffering from as many as 40 separate injuries during nine years with the club.

The France international played 180 games for Arsenal, but was restricted to just one first-team appearance last term, against Southampton in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

 

 

Diaby moved to north London from Auxerre in 2006 and was the longest-serving player in the Arsenal squad.

Despite his injury woes, Diaby flashed prodigious talent for the Gunners and Albion boss Tony Pulis wants to assess if he is capable of offering something to the Baggies this season.

West Brom seem to have offered the player pay as you play deal.

Diaby is unlikely to be able to cope with two matches in quick succession but Albion’s medical team insist they can manage him successfully.

Latest reports suggest that, Olympique Marseille are also in talks with the former Arsenal man.
