After days, weeks, months and even years of attempting to bring Jay Rodriguez to the club, West Brom have finally got their man!

The signing of the one-time England international was confirmed earlier on today. It’s claimed that the initial fee for the deal is in the region of £12m, with add-ons that could take the transfer up to £15m.

It’s a hefty price to pay for a striker that has been suffering with injuries over the last few years, but it’s one that could certainly pay off for Tony Pulis.

So, just why will Rodriguez be a success at the Hawthorns?

I’ve had my say.
