Pulis: Berahino can leave West Brom for 'top club'

Boss Tony Pulis admitted West Brom will let Saido Berahino leave if a top four club makes a move - but only for the right deal.

The 20-goal striker has been linked with a move away from The Hawthorns for most of the season.

The Baggies cannot now finish lower than 13th with Berahino's goals helping them survive and Pulis conceded he may leave.

"If he plays well at this club then a top four club might come in and West Brom will not stop him as long as the deal is right," he said.

"We hope and pray he stays with us because he has a lot more to come and we don't think he is at the end of his development.

"If a top four club comes in and the clubs agree a fee and it's all done, everyone can shake hands and say what a great job he has done for the club.

"Not only has he been here since he was a young lad and we have looked after him, but the club have made money on him and we have to reinvest in other people - that's a fact of life."
