US President Barack Obama is reportedly preparing to approve the deployment of more US troops to Iraq to train up local forces fighting Islamic State.

He is considering up to 500 additional troops as well as a new training base in Iraq's Anbar province.

President Obama said earlier this week the US lacked a "complete strategy" for helping Iraq regain territory from IS.

IS has recently made gains in Iraq despite US-led coalition air strikes.
