Anelka walks out on West Brom and retires

West Bromwich Albion striker Nicolas Anelka has walked out of training and informed staff he is retiring from football, Sky sources understand. Anelka only joined the club over the summer from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua and impressed during pre-season.

But he looked laboured in Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to Southampton and has apparently decided to call time on his career.
