Stoke have had an offer accepted by West Brom for striker Saido Berahino, Press Association Sport understands.

Berahino's protracted move away from The Hawthorns appears closer after the two Premier League clubs agreed a deal which could rise to as much as £15million with add-ons.

The 23-year-old has been a target for Stoke for the past three transfer windows and he is now set to hold talks with Mark Hughes' side over a switch to the bet365 Stadium.

West Brom confirmed they have given Stoke permission to talk with Berahino.

A Baggies statement read: "West Bromwich Albion can confirm the club has today agreed a deal with Stoke City for Saido Berahino.

"As a result, Albion have given Stoke permission to open talks with Berahino about a potential move to the bet365 Stadium. There will be no further comment at this time."

Hendrick wants Norwich star to make Burnley move

Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick has admitted he would love to entice childhood friend and fellow Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady to Turf Moor.

The Clarets have reportedly upped their bid for the unsettled Norwich winger to £13million - a fee which would eclipse the current club record paid to Derby for Hendrick this summer.

Hendrick, who has known Brady since their junior days at St Kevin's Boys' Club in Dublin, said: "For me personally it would be brilliant to have another friend here and I think he would help the squad as well.

"I text him a lot and talk to him every few days - we grew up together and I have known him since the age of seven - so we have a lot of different conversations.

"He is a great player and everyone is saying how well he's done over the previous few years. But at the end of the day the decision is his - hopefully he will see this [interview] and see how much I want him to come."


Hull sign ex-Man City youngster on loan

Hull City have signed full-back Omar Elabdellaoui on loan from Olympiakos for the rest of the season.

The Norwegian, who started his career at Manchester City, has previously worked under Tigers boss Marco Silva at the Greek club.

We haven’t been able to play with a natural right back since I arrived here and so it is a position we needed to find a solution for.

Omar is a player I know and he has come here to help improve our squad.

– Marco Silva
