West Brom loan signing Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has joined West Brom on loan for the rest of the season.

The 28-year-old England international has struggled for regular starts this season, with Roberto Firmino firmly established as Liverpool's favoured option at centre-forward under Jurgen Klopp.

Sturridge began Gareth Southgate's tenure with the national team as first choice, but his struggles and lack of minutes at club level have persuaded him to seek pastures new, with the World Cup in Russia on the horizon.

The Baggies won 3-2 at Anfield to knock Liverpool out of the FA Cup on Saturday and Sturridge will be available for Albion's remaining games in the competition having not been used in round three or four by his parent club.

The former Manchester City youngster has also played for Chelsea, as well as Bolton Wanderers, and boasts an impressive record of 74 Premier League goals in 114 top-flight starts over the course of a career dogged by fitness problems.

Alan Pardew's side travel to face league leaders Manchester City on Wednesday and have been drawn to host Southampton in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
