Report: West Brom to offer Berahino £55,000-per-week, determined to agree new contract

West Brom - The Hawthorns

West Brom are hoping to tie Saido Berahino down to a new contract.

West Brom are ready to offer Saido Berahino a new contract, the Northern Echo reports.

Berahino has been reintegrated into West Brom’s first-team this season, following his long-rumoured summer exit, and he netted his first Premier League goal since October at the weekend.

He performed well, and looks to be returning to his best abilities, with Tony Pulis seemingly willing to trust the forward once again.

Now that he is back in favour at the Hawthorns, Pulis and West Brom chiefs want to tie Berahino down to a new deal, as he will enter the last year of his current contract at the end of this season.

Discussions about a new contract were put on hold earlier in the season when Berahino was out of the team, but now he is back in Pulis’ favour, talks are set to start.

The report claims that the Baggies are willing to offer Berahino up to £55,000-per-week to extend his deal, and ensure his future remains at the Hawthorns.

The report indicates that Newcastle wanted to sign Berahino in January, whilst the Sunday People claim that Spurs also wanted to bring the forward to White Hart Lane last month.
