Football: West Bromwich Albion sign Jay Rodriguez from Southampton for £12m

LONDON (REUTERS) - West Bromwich Albion have signed striker Jay Rodriguez from Southampton, the Saints said on Sunday.

"#SaintsFC can confirm that @JayRodriguez9 has today completed a move to #WBA," a tweet from the club's official Twitter said.

Although no fee was mentioned, British media said the deal was worth £12 million (S$21.5 million).

The 27-year-old's career has been disrupted by a series of injuries which saw him miss the whole of the 2014-15 season and struggle to break back into the Southampton first team since.

He scored 32 goals in 126 appearances for Southampton, whom he joined for £7 million pounds from his hometown club Burnley in 2012.

Rodriguez has one cap for England.
