Albion's January transfer business may not be confined to their exhaustive search for another striker.

Boss Chris Hughton says they will be looking at “all positions” between now and the New Year in the bid for Premier League survival.

Albion have a four-point cushion in mid-table over the clubs in the relegation zone ahead of today’s trip to Swansea.

The clash against the Welshmen is the first of 11 games squeezed into 58 days before the transfer window re-opens.

Swans striker Tammy Abraham, Deportivo La Coruna’s Romanian international Florin Andone and Tottenham’s Vincent Janssen were among the forwards Albion tried to sign in the summer.

They have coped with the disappointment, despite injuries to Glenn Murray and Sam Baldock and a suspension for Tomer Hemed.

Hughton said: “We have started the season quite well for a newly promoted team.

“Come January that’s hopefully still the same. It might not be, you might have injuries.

“A striker would still be one position we are looking at, but there would also be others.

“We don’t know where we’ll be come January, what injuries we’ll have, what we need to supplement.

“We know that window is the last window we have and the last opportunity.

“We will be continuing to look at all positions.”

Business in and out of the Amex is likely during the mid-season review. Fringe wingers Jamie Murphy and Jiri Skalak are prime candidates for exits.
