Ben Foster admits Tottenham-linked Saido Berahino could leave this summer

Saido Berahino Albion

West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster has acknowledged that the Baggies may be forced to sell striker Saido Berahino.

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino has hit the headlines this season, with his exploits for the Baggies attracting plenty of interest.

Berahino, 21, has hit ten goals in 25 appearances for West Brom this season, and has subsequently been linked with moves away from the Hawthorns.

Liverpool and Tottenham are believed to have a strong interest in Berahino, who earned a call-up to the England squad back in November despite being born in Burundi.

No January move materialised for Berahino, but speculation is now suggesting that West Brom will allow him to leave in the summer.

Now, Baggies goalkeeper Ben Foster has acknowledged that the club's top striker could leave the club sooner rather than later in an interview with Sky Sports.

"Without a doubt I want him to stay but I completely understand if a team is going to come in with a £25-30 million bid," said Foster. "There's not a lot you are going to do about that."

"As long as he keeps working his socks off and doing the business for us, I don't think anyone would begrudge him a big move like that. It is only going to benefit the club, a lot more money for us to invest into other players as well," he added.

£25m-£30m would be a huge fee for Berahino considering the alleged attitude problems he has, but he looks to be a promising talent, and his goalscoring record this season will certainly attract bids at the end of the season.
