Baggies defender Gaardsoe retires
West Brom's Thomas Gaardsoe
Gaardsoe joined West Brom from Ipswich in 2003
West Brom's Thomas Gaardsoe has announced his retirement.

The 27-year-old former Ipswich defender, who won two caps for Denmark, has been unable to regain his fitness following groin surgery in the summer.

He said: "Now it is just a matter of finalising negotiations with the club regarding the rest of my contract.

"Of course it's sad but I've had some good years as a footballer. The doctors can't find a solution as the injury is strange and has become chronic."

Gaardsoe made 89 appearances for the Baggies and scored four goals.

Ipswich paid Danish club Aalborg 1.3m for Gaardsoe in 2001 and he joined the Baggies two years later.
