Crystal Palace target ready to force a move

Saido Berahino has rejected a contract extension offer from West Bromwich Albion in an attempt to force a move away from the Hawthorns, according to reports from the Daily Mail

While there is no denying the fact that Saido Berahino is an extremely talented young player, the striker does seem to possess attitude problems and as a result, he has had to endure couple of unsavoury run-ins with West Brom manager Tony Pulis over the past 12 months or so.

As punishment, Berahino was not given a regular run of games in the Premier League last season by Pulis but it seemed like the Baggies were ready to forgive the striker after it emerged that they had tabled a lucrative four-year contract extension.

Could Berahino be heading to Palace?

Much to the dismay of the West Brom faithful though, it can now be revealed by the Daily Mail that Berahino has decided to reject the Baggies’ new contract offer and has made it clear that he wants to leave.

Given the fact that Berahino only has a year remaining on his current deal at the Hawthorns, West Brom will probably have no other option than to offload the 22-year-old this summer rather than allowing him to leave on a free transfer.

Crystal Palace are among the many clubs interested in securing the services of Berahino and it will be interesting to see where the former England Under-21 international will be plying his trade beyond the end of the current transfer window.
