Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has joined West Bromwich Albion on loan for the remainder of the season.
The Reds No. 15 had been tipped to depart for weeks, with Inter Milan and Sevilla among the earliest interested parties.
Newcastle United made a move to keep him in England on Monday, but it’s the Baggies who have snared his signature for six months instead.
The 28-year-old has been anxious to secure more first-team football across the remainder of the season in a bid to win himself a World Cup place for England.

West Brom are expected to pay his wages in full for the remainder of the 17/18 campaign, as well as fronting a £2 million payment for the loan.
Coupled with Philippe Coutinho‘s departure earlier in the month, the Reds have lost 15 goals from the first half of the season and indications appear to point toward no replacements incoming before the January window shuts.
Sturridge’s last appearance came in the Champions League rout of Spartak Moscow in early December.
