With the January transfer window fast approaching, one question West Brom fans will be asking is if their controversial forward, Saido Berahino will stay at The Hawthorns.
Saido Berahino is a name we regularly hear throughout the transfer window and it looks like nothing is going to change next month as the 23-year-old has attracted interest from a number of clubs both in England and overseas.
The Baggies forward has recently returned to The Hawthorns after he was sent on a conditioning course in France to help him lose weight and regain fitness.
With his contract set to expire this summer, West Brom will be keen to get a fee in January for the player instead of losing him for free when his current deal runs out.
Berahino has featured for West Brom’s Under 23 side twice since returning from France, the latest being on Monday against Brighton.
It all started to go down hill for the former England U21 when three bids from Tottenham Hotspur were turned down by The Baggies in 2015.
The forward reacted angrily on Twitter when Spurs’ final £22.5million offer was turned down.
The players’ career has since stalled with a further two transfer offers from Stoke and Crystal Palace both being rejected with a fee of £20million.
Berahino could turn out to be a real bargain for someone in January, as his West Brom career looks to be over.
Any side interested in the forward could offer a transfer fee next month which would see the player move with immediate effect.
On the other hand, Berhaino could sign an agreement with an overseas club under pre-contract terms from the 1st January 2017 which would see him move when his current contract expires in the summer of 2017 .
If an English side was to do this then a fee may be decided through tribunal.
