Report: Saido Berahino open to extending West Brom contract, despite Tottenham offer

Saido Berahino

Tottenham have made an offer to sign Saido Berahino from West Bromwich Albion.

According to the Daily Mail, West Brom have not given up on Saido Berahino extending his contract with the club, as the striker has shown a willingness to open talks concerning a new deal.

The Baggies had originally opened talks with the 22-year-old during last season, but they shelved the discussions in February when Berahino claimed he wanted a move to a bigger club.

However, it has been stated in the report that Berahino has now shown a willingness to stay at the Hawthorns, and the club are desperate to open new talks in an attempt to extend his contract past the two years remaining on his current deal.

This new stance on his contract is despite the fact that Tottenham have shown an interest in signing Berahino, and saw an opening offer rejected for the striker yesterday.

The BBC confirmed that a £15 million approach was rejected by the Baggies, but it is stated that Spurs are set to return with an increased offer, and West Brom want to tie down Berahino’s future before a move can materialise.

The Baggies have been handed a boost with Berahino now wanting to stay at the Hawthorns, and it would come as no surprise to see him stay with the Midlands side rather than moving to North London.
