Zuiverloon recalled by West Brom

IPSWICH Town loanee Gianni Zuiverloon has returned to West Brom to help ease the Premier League side’s injury and suspension crisis.

The right back, who was due to remain at Portman Road until January 4, made four appearances for Town.

But Albion boss Roberto Di Matteo has recalled Zuiverloon after losing defenders Gabriel Tamas and Gonzalo Jara to suspension while Jonas Olsson is out with an Achilles injury.

Although the Dutch full back admitted he was hoping his loan spell in Suffolk could catch the eye of bigger suitors, many Town fans hoped his stay would be extended until the end of the season.

His departure opens the door for one of Jaime Peters, Tom Eastman or Troy Brown to fill the troublesome defensive position in the New Year’s Day match at Coventry.
