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."

Video: Arsenal boss explains Walcott's 'special destiny'

Arsene Wenger believes Theo Walcott has a "special destiny" because nothing has gone to plan throughout his international career.

The Gunners boss was tackling questions about an interview he conducted earlier this week where he mentioned Walcott's destiny, and used the opportunity to praise him for overcoming two big setbacks stretching back ten years.

The England winger was a shock inclusion in England's 2006 World Cup squad at the age of 17, but failed to make an appearance in Germany. He was overlooked by Fabio Capbello four years later, while injury ruled him out of last year's World Cup in Brazil.

Addressing the media this morning, Wenger said:

It's unusual that a boy at 17 years-old goes to the World Cup and that after he has the problems, for example, when England went to Brazil [Walcott was injured].

He was not selected by Capello in 2010 in South Africa and after in 2014 he was injured, you know. It's special. When a boy goes at 17 years of age to the World Cup you think he will make four or five appearance, so he's a special player.

He's had special tests on the mental front an overcome them all. So, I think he will have a special destiny as a player because nothing happens like planned with him but he always responds in a very strong way.

Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky is set to stay at Arsenal next season, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

The 34-year-old has been on the fringes of the squad this season, making only five starts in the Premier League.

However, Wenger insisted the former Borussia Dortmund playmaker remained integral to his plans for 2015-16.

Asked if he expected Rosicky to stay, Wenger replied: "Yes."

The Arsenal manager added: "We have taken up the option (of a one-year contract extension)."
