The sale of West Brom has moved a step closer after chairman Jeremy Peace confirmed exclusivity has been granted to one interested party.

Discussions have taken place with several groups after Peace made the decision earlier in the year to offer up his 88 per cent share of the Baggies as he "considered strategic options for the future development and legacy of the club".

Speculation has linked a Chinese consortium with the club but there has been no confirmation of the identity of the party to whom exclusivity has been granted.

Norwich announced that the Scotland international had moved to Carrow Road for an undisclosed fee just 48 hours after he appeared as a substitute in the Canaries' Sky Bet Championship play-off final victory over Middlesbrough at Wembley.

The 28-year-old had been on loan with Norwich from February, making 18 appearances for Alex Neil's side.

The midfielder joined West Brom from Livingston in 2008 and turned out for the Baggies on 189 occasions, scoring 26 times.

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."
