West Bromwich Albion boosted the Premier League survival chances when they landed Daniel Sturridge in a loan deal to the end of the season, reports the Express and Star.

Albion must pay Liverpool a loan fee of £1.5m, as well as funding his wages for the remainder of the campaign. It’s understood that there is no option to buy at the end of the loan.

Sturridge is desperate to kickstart his career after it was rudely interrupted by injuries. With the immediate aim of a recall to the England team, he has hopes of finding a new club next summer but needs to prove his fitness first.

Sevilla were interested but baulked at the terms of the loan while Inter Milan opted to watch the second half of this season to see how he stood up to the rigours of the Premier League before deciding if he was to join them.

Albion are second bottom of the Premier League and have 14 games left, the first of which is at Sturridge’s former club, Manchester City.

He is also eligible for the Baggies FA Cup run which sees them host Southampton in the fifth round. West Brom won 3 – 2 at Anfield on Sunday to seal their progress to the latter stages.
