Epic Stoke boost as No.1 transfer target prepares to snub huge deal with PL rivals

According to reports from The Telegraph, Stoke City transfer target Saido Berahino is set to snub a four-year contract offer from West Bromwich Albion.

The Hawthorns outfit famously refused to part with the 22-year-old striker last summer despite a number of bids from Tottenham Hotspur, leading to Berahino’s notorious Twitter blast at Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace.

Spurs have moved onto other targets but a number of Premier League clubs are still chasing the former England U21, namely Crystal Palace, Stoke City and Watford.

In fact, The Telegraph claim Berahino has emerged as the No.1 target for the Potters, after they finished last season with the fewest goals of any side in the Premier League’s top half.

Last Friday, it was unexpectedly reported that West Brom had offered the Burundi-born striker a new contract, with his current terms due to expire at the end of next season.

But according to The Telegraph, Berahino will snub the proposal from his current employers – essentially forcing them to sell this summer or else face the prospect of losing him for free in a year’s time.

The Black Country outfit reportedly value Berahino at £20million.
