Quinn returns to Hawthorns

Quinn's move to Notts County has broken down
Striker James Quinn has left Notts County to return to West Bromwich Albion after the breakdown of a permanent move.

Quinn scored three times in six League games during his month's loan and County had wanted to keep the Northern Ireland international.

However, West Brom would only sanction such a move if a permanent deal was completed by 14 January.

We need to try and agree financial terms with James
Peter Storrie

"James isn't joining Notts County for a second month's loan after all," Hawthorns chief executive John Wile told the Baggies' web-site.

"They can't make the move permanent at this time so he's back training with us,"he added.

County's director of football Peter Storrie insisted that a fee, reported to be 100,000, had been agreed with West Brom.

Salary sticking point

Storrie told his club's website: "The simple problem is that we need to try and agree financial terms with James.

"We always said we wouldn't be in a position to complete the deal until the middle of January and that's still the situation.

"Obviously James is a First Division player, who is earning considerably more than people playing in the Second Division.

It's going to take a little time to sit down and thrash things out to arrange something that is acceptable by all parties.

"That's why we said let's extend the loan for another month and during the course of that month agree terms and complete it into a transfer."
