Report: Tottenham target Saido Berahino to be offered new contract by West Brom

Saido Berahino Albion

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino was linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur on transfer deadline day.

West Bromwich Albion will offer Tottenham Hotspur summer transfer target Saido Berahino a new contract, according to The Sunday People.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that the striker will be handed a maximum fine of two weeks’ wages by West Brom for a tweet aimed at club chairman Jeremy Peace on transfer deadline day.

The Premier League outfit will offer Berahino a new contract, according to the report, which will have a buyout clause of £25 million.

The 22-year-old Englishman’s wages will also increase to £50,000 a week, according to The Sunday People.

According to BBC Sport, Tottenham had two bids for Berahino rejected in the summer, but they still tried to sign the youngster on transfer deadline day.

Good move?

If West Brom do set Berahino’s buyout clause at £25m, then they will be making a good move.

Given Tottenham’s keenness on the striker over the past several weeks, they could return for him in January or next summer.

If Berahino has a buyout choice, then Spurs - or any other interested club - will have no choice but to pay that in order to recruit him.
