West Brom reject Crystal Palace and Stoke’s bid for Saido Berahino
It is understood that West Bromwich Albion have rejected bids from London side Crystal Palace and Stoke City.
The FA Cup runners up are said to have offered £20m plus £3m in add-ons for the talented 22-year old whilst Stoke have offered £17m with £3m in add-ons.
Berahino burst onto the scene in 2014-15 when he scored 20 goal but last season was not good for the striker who only scored four times in the league.
Over the last 12 months he has been constantly linked with a move away from the Baggies and after Tottenham had a transfer deadline bid rejected in 2015 the striker controversially took to Twitter and posted:
“Sad how i can’t say exactly how the club has treated me but i can officially say i will never play Jeremy Peace.”
As we know he has since played but he is clearly is still unhappy and wants to move on.
In the last window his team once again rejected a bid for the striker when Newcastle offered £23m.
Ironically the reason Crystal Palace are looking for a new striker is because they need extra striking options after selling Dwight Gayle to Newcastle for £10m.
