Sky Sports are reporting that it looks like Daniel Sturridge will help West Brom survive in the Premier League this season and not Newcastle as he has chosen to go on loan to West Brom for what are called family reasons.
Maybe he’s closer to home by going to West Brom but we still hoped he would join Newcastle.
Newcastle’s enquiry for Daniel Sturridge falling on deaf ears as we’re told the England striker is set to choose West Brom for family reasons.

There were some doubts he wanted to come to Newcastle when George Caulkin of the Times tweeted this a few hours ago.
Newcastle were expecting Sturridge to travel north this lunchtime. He hasn’t.

John Percy is the Midlands reporter for the Telegraph and tweeted this out.

But if Sturridge can just stay fit he should be able to score the goals for West Brom.
Now it remains to be seen what happens with £20M striker Jorgensen who Feyenoord are playing hardball over – but Newcastle must bring a good striker in if we have a decent chance of surviving in the Premier League this season.
It’s all starting to get very late and there is supposed to be a 6:00 pm deadline for Newcastle to let Feyenoord know what our plans are for the striker.
If we walk away – who else can we bring in?
