DONE DEAL: Liverpool winger Sturridge joins West Brom on loan

West Bromwich Albion have signed Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 28-year-old was desperate to gain more playing time in order to stay in contention for England's World Cup squad.

The immaculate play of Liverpool attacking trio Roberto Firmino, Mohamad Salah and Sadio Mane, significantly reduced Sturridge's opportunities this season, which saw him make nine league appearances.

“This felt like the right fit," said Sturridge on his move.

“I've got friends here I've played with before, the manager spoke very well, the challenge with the team and the style of play. I just felt this was the right fit for me."

Sturridge, who has also played at Chelsea and Manchester City, was born in Birmingham. It is believed his ties to the city caused him to choose the Baggies over Newcastle United, where he was due to undertake a medical on Tuesday.
