West Brom's Steven Reid quits Republic of Ireland duty
Injury-plagued Reid earned 23 Republic of Ireland caps
Republic of Ireland midfielder Steven Reid has retired from international football to concentrate on his club career at West Brom.
Reid, 29, secured a two-year contract at West Brom in May after helping the club achieve promotion to the Premier League during a two-month loan spell.
The injury-plagued former Millwall and Blackburn player won 23 Irish caps after making his debut in 2001.
"I've taken this decision to prolong my club career," said Reid.
"Having weighed everything up, I know this is the right decision.
"The injuries I've had over the past couple of years have been well documented.
"It's a decision I came to after lengthy discussions with the club's medical staff and my family.
"I've had some unforgettable times with Ireland, the highlight being making two appearances at the World Cup Finals in Japan and South Korea in 2002 and it has always been a huge honour for me to wear the Irish jersey.
