Jackson to ease striker shortage?

Jackson to ease striker shortage?

Albion are being heavily linked with a late loan move for Norwich City striker Simeon Jackson.

The Argus, among others, are reporting that the 26-year-old Canadian international is set to secure a deal with the Seagulls before the loan window shuts on Thursday night.

Out-of-favour at Carrow Road, Jackson would likely stay at the Amex for the remainder of the season - including any potential play-off ties - and with his contract due to expire this summer, it'd be with a possible view to a permanent deal.

The arrival of the pacy ex-Gillingham poacher would immediately relieve a little pressure on the shoulders of striker Leo Ulloa - the only fit, senior forward currently available to Gus Poyet, following injuries to Will Hoskins and Craig Mackail-Smith, and a lengthy suspension for Ashley Barnes.

And whilst the free-scoring Ulloa looks set to continue his starring role in attack for the Albion, Jackson has history of making a telling contribution from the bench in a Championship promotion push - as his flurry of late goals during the back end of the 2010/11 season helped fire Norwich to the Premier League.

Should the Jamaican-born hitman put pen the paper on the south coast, here's hoping history can repeat itself.
