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."

An honest Charlie Adam admitted the winning goal for Stoke should not have stood but believes his side deserved to take the spoils as they won 1-0 at Watford.

Adam headed Xherdan Shaqiri's inswinging corner against a post before watching it ricochet off Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes and into the net .

In the build-up, the Scotland international appeared to shove Valon Behrami to the ground for a goal he feels should have been credited to him and not an own goal to the Brazilian goalkeeper.

Adam told Sky Sports:

It was a goal! I think it was a foul really, I pushed him but we will take it - it's a great win.

I thought we were excellent following last week's disappointment. You need to bounce back and we have done that, it's a tough place to come away from home and we nicked a 1-0 and we played really well.

They had a couple of chances but when the three big lads come up front for the last 10-15 minutes, you get a lot of balls in the box and that's where you have to be solid.

We are delighted with that, it's a good three points and we move onto next week.

– Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam
