West Brom have inquired about signing striker Obafemi Martins on loan - but his current club Rubin Kazan are only interested in a permanent deal, Press Association Sport understands.

Rubin are looking to recoup around £3 million from off-loading former Newcastle player Martins rather than allowing him to move to the Hawthorns - or anywhere - on a temporary basis.

It is understood his wage demands of around £40,000 a week could also prove a stumbling block.
