Newcastle leave Chelsea striker Sturridge to West Brom, Stoke

Newcastle United will not be competing for Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge.

Sturridge could be available at Chelsea with new manager Andre Villas-Boas planning to bring in his own strikers.

The Evening Chronicle says it is unlikely the ex-Manchester City man will be heading to Tyneside.

Sturridge spent last season on loan at Bolton Wanderers and the Trotters are keen to bring him to the Reebok Stadium on a permanent basis if they can.

West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City are also keen on the man who netted eight goals last term while on loan at Wanderers.

A United source said today: "The manager is looking into other players, so it is unlikely Sturridge will be coming to Newcastle."
