West Brom boss Bryan Robson has said he will put the Ugo Ehiogu saga behind him.West Brom boss Bryan Robson has insisted that he will not dwell on the unsuccessful attempt to bring Ugo Ehiogu to The Hawthorns.
The Middlesbrough defender was expected to reach an agreement with Baggies bosses this month, before chairman Jeremy Peace announced the deal was dead in the water.
Robson admitted he was sad to see the transfer fall through, but said that he would move on and turn his attention to other potential targets.
"It's disappointing but at the end of the day the actual deal was too much for this football club. That's the end of it now and we have to move on," he told Sky Sports News.
"You'll have to ask the chairman because all I know is that the deal was too rich for this club.
"We have a couple of irons in the fire but nothing really that is anywhere near getting done so we'll just keep plugging away on that front."
Robson was much more animated about Tomasz Kuszczak's fine save against Wigan on Sunday, which denied Jason Roberts from snatching an injury time equaliser for The Latics.
"It was a fantastic save. It was very important for us to get three points rather than a draw. It was a big result for us and Tomasz played his part in that," he enthused.
Kuszczak was also pleased with the stop, and believes that he is finally reaping the rewards for years of hard work on the training ground.
"A lot of people have asked me about that save so I feel good because I have worked very hard for a couple of years and now I have reached a really good stage of my career," he remarked.
