West Brom Sign Jay Rodriguez For £12m

Recommended Posts



West Bromwich Albion have signed England striker Jay Rodriguez from Southampton for a fee of around £12m.

The 27-year-old has struggled with injuries in his five years at Saints, scoring 32 goals in 126 appearances.

His most prolific season was in 2013-14 when he scored 15 Premier League goals and made his only England appearance.

He missed the entire 2014-15 season after a serious knee injury and then had ankle surgery in November 2015, making only 16 appearances that season.

Rodriguez, who has struggled for first-team football since his injuries, scored six goals in 34 appearances in 2016-17 and has been a long-term target for Baggies boss Tony Pulis.

Burnley-born Rodriguez, who left his home town club for Southampton in a reported £7m move in 2012, made his international debut against Chile in November 2013 and was in contention for England's World Cup squad before his knee injury in April 2014.

Has never recovered after those initial 16 months out with an ACL. Shame because he's a nice lad and looked promising. He just looked so toothless in attack for Saints last year mind and they'll be delighted to nearly double what they paid for him.

This leaves Southampton with only Gabbiadini, Austin and Long. I can't remember the last time Gabbiadini and Austin went a full season without a long term injury and Long has never been used as a first-choice. Wonder if they'll look to buy another striker.
