West Brom boss Mowbray admits Miller replacement signing needed

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray admits they're in the market for a new striker after losing Ishmael Miller for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Mowbray said: "It is a bad injury. We wish Ishmael a speedy recovery. We needed him really. He has been our main source of threat to the opposition.

"I thought he was doing exceptionally well again on Sunday, asking questions of them. It is a shame for him and for us.

"As for the transfer window, we are looking. We will wait and see. The bottom line is, if there aren't the funds there to do anything, it doesn't change because you get an injury.

"We've got to work within the parameters we've got. We will try and bring one or two in on loan and try and increase the competition if we can.

"The problem is invariably top Premier League strikers don't go out on loan. We are scanning Europe to see if we can find someone.

"Hopefully, one of the top teams may find themselves with some excess players who need a bit of game time.

"Young players at big clubs who haven't played much football is another avenue for us. We are looking at all areas. Let's wait and see what happens."
