Daniel Sturridge joins West Brom on loan from Liverpool

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

Sturridge was linked with Inter Milan and Newcastle in recent weeks but a source has told Sky Sports News he chose West Brom for family reasons.

The 28-year-old England striker will be able to play in the FA Cup as he has not featured for Liverpool in the competition this season.

Sturridge scored 48 goals in 98 Premier League games for Liverpool but has suffered from a variety of injuries during his time on Merseyside and this has restricted him to just 55 league matches over the past four seasons.

He has endured a frustrating season so far, playing 15 times, and, having picked up a thigh injury, he has not been in action since coming off the bench during the Champions League tie against Spartak Moscow in early December.

Liverpool were happy to keep Sturridge at Anfield, given they are still involved in the Champions League and are trying to secure a top-four spot in the Premier League.

However, with the World Cup in Russia later this year, Sturridge would get more time on the pitch before Gareth Southgate names his squad.
