Report claims agreement for Spurs to sign West Brom's Saido Berahino, Levy to conclude deal

Saido Berahino

Tottenham are reportedly poised to sign West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino this summer.

According to a report from The Guardian this evening, West Bromwich Albion have agreed in principle to let striker Saido Berahino sign for Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Berahino, 22, hit 20 goals for West Brom last season in a superb campaign, and his exploits at The Hawthorns triggered major interest in his signature last summer.

As reported by Sky Sports, Tottenham had a total of four bids rejected for the Burundi-born hitman, prompting Berahino to vent his frustration on Twitter back in September.

Since then, Berahino has been working to put himself back in the good books of chairman Jeremy Peace and manager Tony Pulis, and his recent goal against Crystal Palace showed just how dangerous Berahino can be when given the chance to shine.

Now though, with just over a year left on his contract, Berahino finally appears to be on the verge of leaving West Brom, with The Guardian reporting that West Brom have agreed a move to let Berahino finally join Tottenham at the end of the campaign.

It's suggested that West Brom have been impressed with Berahino's commitment to the cause of late and are willing to finally let him complete his dream move to White Hart Lane, and whilst an agreement has been reached in principle, it's stated that Peace and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will meet again at the end of the season to conclude the deal.

We've seen plenty of these kind of reports over the last year, but The Guardian seem confident that Berahino will be joining Spurs this summer, offering much needed cover and competition for his former England Under-21 team-mate Harry Kane - and if the reports are correct, this is another piece of the puzzle for manager Mauricio Pochettino, despite lingering question marks over Berahino's attitude.

Would you be happy to see Berahino finally join Spurs?
