West Bromwich Albion are ready to battle Hull City to sign Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez on loan in January, according to the Telegraph.

The Baggies attacking options are sparce, with Salomon Rondon the only recognised centre-forward currently being used by manager Tony Pulis.

Summer signings Nacer Chadli and Hal Robson-Kanu can also play there, although Saido Berahino continues to be overlooked as his contract wears down.

Hull boss Mike Phelan confirmed his interest in signing Rodriguez at Friday's pre-West Brom press conference, with the Baggies visiting the KCOM Stadium later this afternoon.

However, on current form a move to The Hawthorns is likely to appeal more to the Southampton striker, who has struggled for regular minutes since suffering a serious injury in May 2014.

West Brom, meanwhile, are also said to be keen on Charlton Athletic teenager Ademola Lookman, who was linked with a move to Southampton back in August (the Mirror).

However, it is claimed that the 19-year-old is not a priority target for the Baggies, as they seek players who can make an immediate impact at first team level.
