Jonathan Obika has pledged to add a clinical finish to Albion's attacking options after signing on loan from Spurs.

The much-travelled 23-year-old striker scored three goals in the space of six games during his last loan spell at Charlton in the Championship at the end of last season.

Obika, speaking about his 93-day move at The Amex today, said: "I'm clinical. I love to score goals, that's my job. I hold the ball up well, I'm powerful and very quick."

Obika's switch from White Hart Lane has reunited him again with Albion assistant Nathan Jones.

He said: "Nathan was there when I had my first loan spell at Yeovil and he's been a big part of my career so far in terms of confidence and the work he does on the field. I really enjoy it, so he was a big part."

Much travelled players are sometimes a concern - but if he has the right temperament and as is young enough, he could be the one!! That said if he has a total of 54 minutes over the next 7 matches he'll be pushed to have scored more goals than Ashley this season by the end of March!!

Good luck Jo - if you play you should get 3 great opportunities per match and I'll settle for you scoring one of them each game!!

UTA!
