Saido Berahino looking to move on to bigger things

Published 1 Comments

West Brom’s top scorer and prized asset Saido Berahino has been quoted as saying that as long as he can help the Baggies stay in the top flight, he is sure fans won’t mind him moving on to “bigger things” in the summer.

The derogatory comments were made in an interview with Sky Sports News by the England international who had been linked with a £25 million move to Liverpool and Spurs during the January transfer window.

While his current contract at the Hawthorns runs until June 2017, the striker who has netted 14 times for West Brom this season, has turned down an extension.

“Pushing on”

Berahino said: “I’ve got to stay focused on what I’m doing right now, which is scoring the goals and keeping West Brom in the Premier League.

“If I can keep them in the Premier League and score as many goals as I can, I’m pretty sure the fans wouldn’t mind me pushing on and going on to bigger things.”

Berahino has been impressed with new manager Tony Pulis, who managed to bring Man United midfielder Darren Fletcher to the club in Janurary.

Old school Pulis

He said: “You can see he’s got that seriousness about him and wants to help the team to win as many games as possible.

“He’s old school: he believes in hard work. But all the lads have taken to his work well, we’ve been working together, and his main focus since he stepped in the building was to get us together working as a team."
