Former Albion loanee Joe Mattock has opted to join Sheffield Wednesday.
Mattock, released recently by West Brom, has joined the Championship newcomers on a three-year deal.
The former Leicester man played 15 games for the Seagulls in the later weeks of last season.
Albion boss Gus Poyet said of Mattock recently: “He is one of our options because we know him well. He was always on our list as a left-back cover or to challenge with Marcos Painter. We will consider him. But, yes, it could be difficult (to sign him)."
Albion have been linked with Polish free agent Tomasz Kuszczak.
The former Manchester United goalkeeper is currently enjoying a Mediterannean holiday and a source close to the player believes he has yet to make a decision on his next footballing destination.
Kuszczak earned excellent reviews during loan stints at West Brom and, more recently, Watford.
