DONE DEAL: West Brom sign Southampton forward Jay Rodriguez

West Bromwich Albion have completed the signing of Jay Rodriguez from Southampton.

The Englishman penned a four-year contract with his new club.

According to Sky Sports, the Baggies paid an initial £12m for the 27-year old, but the fee could rise to £15m.

Rodriguez struggled to find his place with the Saints under the club's last two managers, Ronald Koeman and Claude Puel.

The Englishman scored 35 goals in 125 appearances with the south-coast club.


The Baggies chose an unorthodox way of telling their fans that Rodriguez had signed for the club.

They responded to a question on Twitter asking when their first signing would be, Albion then replied with a video clip of Rodriguez saying “yes we have".
