Former Fulham favourite Geoff Horsfield is expected to make his Hawthorns swansong tomorrow, with Bryan Robson admitting the striker’s future was out of Albion’s hands.

The 32-year-old will play in Albion’s clash at Fulham before completing a loan move to Sheffield United, for the remainder of this season, early next week.

Robson wants to keep the experienced marksman but the Barnsley-born striker is keen to return to South Yorkshire, having spent the last few years in the West Midlands.

He is also keen to play first team football, which may prove difficult at The Hawthorns when Kanu returns from African Nations Cup duty.

“We are still in the same position until after this weekend as regards what happens with Geoff,” said the Baggies boss. He has never had to persuade me (about staying) because I’ve always wanted to keep Geoff.

“Both he and Kevin Campbell have vast experience and with the work ethic and their strength, you know they are going to lead the line well and give players the chance to come up behind them and support them. “But what happens next is Geoff’s decision.”
