Saido Berahino: West Brom outcast officially joins Stoke City

In official news, Saido Berahino has finally managed to depart West Brom by signing for Stoke City.

The 23 year old forward signed on a five-and-a-half year deal with the transfer fee reportedly set at £12 million.

As reported by The Guardian:

“Stoke City have completed the signing of Saido Berahino, beating off competition from Watford and West Ham United. Mark Hughes has shown interest in the West Bromwich Albion striker in the past two transfer windows and the Stoke manager had thought his hopes of sealing a transfer were fading.

However, with Berahino’s contract expiring in the summer and the 23-year-old having failed to make a first-team appearance since September, West Brom were keen to resolve the issue before the end of the month and accepted a bid of an initial £12m, with a further £3m potentially due in bonuses. Berahino has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal.”
