West Brom have bolstered their strikeforce by signing Arsenal youngster Jay Simpson on loan for the rest of the season.

Simpson, 20, scored twice for a youthful Gunners side in their 3-0 Carling Cup victory over Wigan in November and is being allowed to leave the Emirates Stadium to gain first-team experience.

He had a highly successful loan spell with Millwall last term and could now feature for the Baggies in Saturday's FA Cup third-round clash with Peterborough.
