West Bromwich Albion boss Roy Hodgson admits he wants a striker signing after their draw with Parma.

Hodgson admits the Baggies are still chasing a forward but would not comment on names.

Reading's Shane Long is a target but the Royals' £7.5million valuation is putting him off.

Hodgson added: "We had a lot of chances in the second half but it didn't look like we were going to take one.

"It was nice to get the equaliser because I thought the second-half performance more than merited that."
