Saido Berahino’s transfer saga seems to have dragged on for years (because it has) but it looks like the end is nigh, with West Brom accepting Stoke City’s offer for the English striker.
Previously one of the most exciting young strikers in the Premier League, Berahino has fallen off the wagon in recent years and isn’t quite at the level he used to be. Still, when he finds form, Berahino an be a huge player.
That raises questions as to whether West Brom are making the right call with accepting a sale but the statistics show Tony Pulis and his side have come to the right conclusion, with Berahino woeful in front of goal recently.

Scoring just one goal and hitting just eight shots on target in 28 Premier League matches, Berahino’s form has declined massively and the numbers actually raise questions as to whether Stoke City have made the right decision in buying him.
