West Brom have told Wolves winger Bakary Sako to lower his wage demands, if he wants to seal a move to The Hawthorns.

The wideman, who is out of contract in the summer, has had an impressive season in the Championship, but looks give to make the step up to the Premier League.

Sako, however, is reportedly asking for monies beyond West Brom's means, which could scupper any deal.

Jamie Vardy's stunning injury-time winner handed Leicester a vital survival lifeline after a 3-2 victory at West Brom.

The striker ran from the halfway line before burying a drive into the corner to close the gap to safety to just three points.

It clinched back-to-back Premier League wins for the Foxes for the first time since September but they remain bottom with seven games left.

Robert Huth's late header had made it 2-2 after Darren Fletcher and Craig Gardner scored for Albion, while David Nugent levelled in the first half before the Foxes' late show.

The Baggies, playing in a special replica kit from the 1968 FA Cup final as they paid tribute to former striker Jeff Astle to help launch a foundation in the late striker's name, are seven points above the bottom three.
