Claudio Yacob could be back in action this weekend but West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke still has to run the rule over him.

The impressive Argentine midfielder has not played since December 1 because of a hamstring injury but will be considered for Saturday's West Midlands derby with Aston Villa at The Hawthorns.

"The game might come too soon, but we will have a look at him and make a decision. He's in a good place," said Clarke.
