Alan Shearer makes a prediction about Saido Berahino’s future

Saido Berahino

Alan Shearer believes that Saido Berahino will leave West Bromwich Albion in the summer transfer window.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has suggested on Coral.co.uk that Saido Berahino will leave West Bromwich Albion in the summer transfer window.

Berahino has been on the books of West Brom his entire professional career so far and has a contract until June 2017.

The striker has not been in great form this season and failed to convert two penalties against Watford at the weekend.

West Brom failed to return to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, as they went down 1-0 to the Hornets at home.

Ben Watson’s goal in the 27th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies would have picked up all three points from the encounter, had Berahino been able to convert his two second-half penalties.

Former Newcastle striker Shearer believes that the 2015-16 campaign has been a waste for Berahino, and expects the 22-year-old striker to be at a different club next season.

“Saido Berahino missed two penalties at the weekend for West Brom,” the former England international wrote on Coral.co.uk. “I think it has been a wasted season for the Baggies forward after his rows with the club.

“To waste a season like he has done is a shame because if you are lucky you only end up having 17 or 18 campaigns as a footballer. I should imagine the club and the player will want to go in a different direction next season.

“He made mistakes but he did come out and apologise. The quicker the end of the season comes for him, the better. West Brom will want to cash in now and move on without him.”

Berahino has scored four goals and created 16 chances in 28 Premier League appearances for West Brom so far this season.

The former England Under-21 international has a pass accuracy of 79% and a shot accuracy of 45%, and has won eight headers, 18 dribbles and 11 tackles.
