Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez is set to be a man in demand this summer, and it has today been claimed by the Daily Mail that all three of Burnley, West Brom and Newcastle are vying for his signature.

The one-time England international appears to have fallen too far down the pecking order at Saints to really make a lasting impact, and he didn’t have the desired influence under Claude Puel last season.

Rodriguez failed to secure regular first-team football and seems to be the fourth choice option behind Manolo Gabbiadini, Charlie Austin and Shane Long.

The versatile forward was signed from Burnley in the summer of 2012 for what was at the time a record transfer fee for the club, worth £6m.

Meanwhile, a move to West Brom and Newcastle has been touted for Rodriguez over the course of the last nine months.

A move up north appears to be an attractive prospect for the out of favour forward, and Saints are keen to make around £15m from his sale.
