West Brom release trio of players

26th May 2011 - Alma Shera

West Bromwich Albion have released three players as their football manager Roy Hogson makes preparations ahead of the 2011/2012 Premier League campaign.

Abdoulaye Meite, Gianni Zuiverloon and Giles Barnes have all been removed from the club's payroll.

Meite, formerly of Bolton, joined West Brom three years ago for £2 million, while Gianni Zuiverloon was signed from Heerenveen for £3.2 million at around the same time.

Ex-Derby midfielder Barnes originally signed for the team in 2010, though he has not played since Roy Hodgson was appointed as manager.

West Brom's sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth said: "I would like to thank Abdoulaye, Gianni and Giles for their efforts with us and wish them every success in their future careers."

One-year deals have been reached with left-back Marek Cech and striker Roman Bednar.

Hodgson masterminded a sensational change in fortunes for West Brom, with the ex-Blackburn manager guiding them from the edge of the relegation zone to 11th place in the league.
