West Brom target Ignacio Camacho has postponed contract talks with Malaga, according to the Birmingham Mail.
The Baggies made a £12million bid for the Spanish midfielder last summer but saw their offer rejected by the Andalusian club.
However, they could revive their interest in the 26-year-old, who has deferred all talks about his future until the end of the season.
“I have always said the same, what has to come will come,” Camacho told Spanish newspaper AS.
“If it is good for me and Malaga it will be valuable. The important thing is to finish the season.”
“It (talks) just stands still.
“But there is no problem between the two parties.
“It was very important to focus and there was no speculation about contracts or personal preference.”
It’s an ominous sign for Malaga’s Quatari owner Abdullah Bin Nasser Al Thani who knows an €18 million bid would trigger a release clause in Camacho’s current contract.
