Neither footballer satisfied Tony Pulis, the coach for the Premier League side West Bromich Albion.

The Baggies have tweeted that the pair will not be offered a contract after being on trial for several weeks:

TP: “We have decided against taking Chamakh and Sissoko. They have moved on and we wish them well”

Assistant head coach Dave Kemp told the UK Express and Star paper that the club may have chosen to keep them had they joined earlier for training:

“Fitness-wise they’re off it, let’s be truthful, they haven’t done the pre-season our players have done.”
