West Brom boss Irvine denies freezing out Yacob

West Bromwich Albion boss Alan Irvine denies freezing out Claudio Yacob.

Yacob has been assured he will play a part during West Bromwich Albion's festive programme.

"By his own admission his head wasn't really here over the summer because he thought he was moving but since he got his head around the fact he wasn't moving he was great," said Irvine.

"He was never a problem prior to that but if you take that little edge off people they just don't achieve what they're capable of achieving at this level."
