Report: Major West Brom transfer news as this star told he can leave for £10m-£15m

Saido Berahino could be on his way out of the Hawthorns this summer after all, for the right price.

Last summer's long-running transfer saga could be set to be repeated this year as West Bromwich Albion have told Saido Berahino that he can leave the club for the right price, according to the Sun.

The 22-year-old was the target of persistent interest from Tottenham Hotspur last summer, with Albion rejecting three bids from the North London club for the striker, with the final offer reportedly standing at around £25 million.

Berahino notoriously threatened never to play for Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace again after not being allowed to move to White Hart Lane, but after a brief spell in exile he has since returned to the club's squad this season and recently apologised for his comments.

However, reports earlier this week suggested that Spurs believed they may be able to finally get their man for a significantly reduced price at the end of the current campaign, and further reports have now surfaced appearing to confirm this.

The Sun claims that Berahino held talks with Peace about his future this week, and that the Albion chairman has agreed to allow the striker to leave if the club receives an offer which they feel is acceptable.

Despite turning down over £20 million last summer, the report claims the fee that West Brom would accept this summer would be between £10 million and £15 million, with Berahino having just a single year left on his contract at the Hawthorns.

It is thought that Spurs are still keen to reignite their interest in the striker, and they are considered the hot favourites to seal a deal in the transfer window.

Berahino, who has been called up by the England senior team but is yet to win his first cap, has scored just seven goals from 28 appearances in all competitions this season.
