Daniel Sturridge turns down Newcastle in order to join West Brom



Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge is set to go out on loan for the remainder of this season.

According to reports, the England forward will join West Brom. Initially, he was expected to end up at Newcastle United but the player has chosen the Baggies in order to be closer to his family.

Sky Sports believe that the deal could be completed by tomorrow.

As per John Percy from Telegraph, the player is all set to complete his medical with the Baggies today.

West Brom managed to dump Liverpool out of the FA Cup over the weekend and the Baggies will be delighted to have secured Sturridge’s services.

Despite not playing often for Klopp this season, Sturridge is one of the best strikers in the Premier League. If he manages to rediscover his form at WBA, he could take them to a whole new level.

The 28-year-old was a target for Sevilla and Inter Milan as well.

Sturridge had an explosive start to life at Liverpool. He managed to score 48 goals in 98 Premier League games for the Reds.

However, he has been injured quite often and his injuries have restricted him to just 55 league matches over the past four seasons.

Sky Sports claim that the Reds wanted to keep Sturridge at the club but with the World Cup coming up, Sturridge wanted a move so that he can play more often.
