Baggies to return for Rodriguez

West Bromwich Albion are expected to revive their pursuit for Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez in the New Year.

The England international was tipped to seal a temporary deal with the Baggies in the summer before he opted to remain at St.Mary's.

According to The Telegraph, Baggies boss Tony Pulis will make a fresh approach for the 27-year-old in January following his struggles to secure regular playing time at the South Coast.

The Baggies are currently short in the forward department with Salomon Rondon and Hal Robson-Kanu being the only reliable options whilst Saido Berahino is still undecided over his future at the Hawthorns.

Rodriguez has made a solitary league start for the Saints this season with the majority of appearances coming in the EFL Cup and the Europa League.
