Liverpool ace Daniel Sturridge set to sign loan deal with West Brom ahead of Newcastle

Newcastle opened late talks with the England international, but the Baggies have beaten them to the mark.

The Magpies expected Sturridge to travel to the north west this lunchtime to discuss terms – but that didn’t materialise.

Sevilla, West Ham and Inter Milan were among the sides that had indicated their interest in the striker.

But it appears Sturridge will move to the Midlands – where he was born – and could even undergo a medical later on Monday.

In an interesting turn of events the England striker will now join the club that knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup on Saturday evening.

A game that will be remembered more for the chaos caused by VAR ended in a 3-2 Baggies win at Anfield as they progressed to the fifth round.

Sturridge’s move should increase his playing time as he looks to force his way back into the England reckoning ahead of the World Cup this summer.

It should also make him more of a fantasy football threat, with the striker priced at a bargain £3.3m on Dream Team.
