West Brom have offered Stoke target Saido Berahino a new four-year contract in the hope of putting an end to speculation on his future.
The Potters had been the favourites to land the 22-year-old after last month tabling an offer of £16million for the Albion hitman, who only has 12 months left to run on his current contract.
However, Albion are thought to be holding out for £20million, a figure Stoke are unwilling to match.
Stoke’s failure to meet Berahino’s asking price has opened the door for the numerous other clubs said to be interested in the striker’s services, with Watford reportedly ready to make an offer.
It is now being reported that West Brom have decided they do no want to lose Berahino just yet and have tabled a lucrative, long-term contract in the hope of getting him to stay.
The offer may not change Berahino’s mind, though, the former England Under-21 international having previously made it clear he wants to move on from the Hawthorns.
