“#SaintsFC can confirm that @JayRodriguez9 has today completed a move to #WBA,” they said.

Although no fee was mentioned, British media said the deal was worth 12 million pounds ($15.63 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.

He scored 32 goals in 126 appearances for Southampton, whom he joined for seven million pounds from his home-town club Burnley in 2012.

Rodriguez has one cap for England.
