West Brom are interested in signing Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, according to Sky sources.

Mitrovic, 23, has been out over a month with a back injury and has not started a Premier League game this season.

Sky Sports News understands West Brom want to sign a striker in the January window, but any move is dependant on funds which would be raised from the potential sale of defender Jonny Evans.
