West Brom midfielder cracks the obvious joke as Daniel Sturridge's loan move is confirmed

Daniel Sturridge will spend the rest of the season at West Brom.

Having hardly featured for Liverpool this season, the striker has completed a loan switch to The Hawthorns as he seeks to force his way into Gareth Southgate's England squad for this summer's World Cup. He rejected the opportunity to join Newcastle in a similar deal.

His move to West Brom comes barely 48 hours after the Midlands club knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup with a surprise 3-2 victory at Anfield - presenting (*checks spelling carefully*)ย Grzegorz Krychowiak with the opportunity to crack the obvious joke...

The Polish midfielder, also a loanee at The Baggies after signing a season-long deal from Paris Saint-Germain, was quick to reply to the tweet confirming that Sturridge's loan deal had been finalised.

'If you can't beat us, join us,' he tweeted, throwing in a few laughing-face emojis in there for good measure.

Of course he did.


Despite hardly appearing for Jรผrgen Klopp's side during this campaign, some Liverpool supporters have questioned the decision to allow both Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho to leave the club - both for different reasons - without bringing in any players to bolster their attacking options.
