Stoke City's Saido Berahino

Saido Berahino’s move to Stoke means sorry saga at West Brom is over … almost

It was one of those transfer deals that had all three parties feeling satisfied come the end. West Bromwich Albion picked up £12m for a player who could have gone for nothing in the summer, Stoke City signed a talented 23‑year‑old English striker for a fraction of the fee that someone of his age and ability would normally command, and Saido Berahino welcomed the chance to be a professional footballer in active employment again.
