Reports in the Daily Star and the Sun are linking West Bromwich Albion with a £8million swoop for Reading’s Shane Long.

The Republic of Ireland international, who has one year left on his contract, has now emerged as Baggies boss Hodgson’s No 1 target with the former Fulham manager keen to pair the striker with last season’s 15-goal top scorer Peter Odemwingie

West Brom face competition from Newcastle, Everton and Wolves and should Hodgson succeed in his bid it would mean the club almost doubling the club-record £4.7m they paid Real Mallorca for midfielder Borja Valero in 2008.
