"It was my choice and it feels the right choice for me," he told

"I was born here and have played in the younger age groups. I want to take it up to the first team one day."


WBA boss Pulis speaks of admiration for Lambert

Earlier this week Baggies boss Tony Pulis went public with his admiration for Lambert.

"I think it is very important we get players who score goals and Rickie has a great goalscoring record," he said.

"From what I can gather from people at Liverpool, his fitness levels are very good and he is desperate to play football.

"He didn't play last year so it would be like bringing a brand new car out of the garage if you did sign him, just putting a bit of petrol in him and letting him run."

It's being reported that Liverpool and England striker Ricky Lambert has been given permission to undergo a medical at West Brom after the Reds accepted an offer of £3million.

The 33-year-old is set to leave his boyhood club just 12 months after being signed from Southampton for £4.5million.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Lambert was resigned to leaving after Liverpool's £32.5million capture of Aston Villa's Belgian centre-forward Christian Benteke and the signing of Brazilian Roberto Firmino for £29million.

With Danny Ings and Divock Origi also joining Brendan Rodgers' squad, Lambert accepted he would need to depart in search of regular first-team football.

Lambert realised a dream when he signed for Liverpool some 17 years after he was released as a trainee.

However, he endured a frustrating campaign and found his opportunities limited. He scored three goals in 36 appearances but made just 12 starts.
