Tottenham will finally sign Saido Berahino this summer after deal agreed in principle with West Brom

Posted by

Saido Berahino will finally get his move from West Bromwich Albion to Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season, according to The Guardian.

The Guardian reports that the Baggies have agreed in principle to allow the striker to leave for Spurs after two transfer windows of uncertainty and speculation.

Chairmen Jeremy Peace and Daniel Levy clashed as Tottenham had four bids rejected for Berahino last summer, after the 22-year-old’s transfer request.

But The Guardian understands that the hatchet has been buried and Peace and Levy will sit down in the summer and come to an agreement over Berahino.

Stoke City and Newcastle United made attempts to sign Berahino in January – but West Brom were not going to sell last month and Spurs respected that – The Guardian adds.

But the Guardian reports that there is now an acceptance that the Burundi-born forward will be sold at the end of the season, when his contract will have only one year remaining.

Berahino has scored seven goals for Albion this season despite limited game time. He managed 20 in all competitions last season, including 14 in the Premier League.
