Stoke City will this week complete the £16million signing of West Brom striker Saido Berahino, according to the Sunday People.
Stoke are known long-term admirers of Berahino, who was the subject of several failed bids from Tottenham last summer and has also been tracked by Newcastle.
Spurs have since turned their attention elsewhere, while Newcastle’s relegation putting them out of the running, seemingly forcing West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace into accepting Stoke’s revised offer just days after rejecting a £15million bid.
Berahino has been offered a £70,000-a-week package to move to the bet365 Stadium, it is said, and is set to become Mark Hughes’ first signing of the summer.
The Potters also want to sign Al Ahly and Egypt winger Ramadan Sobhi, while Dundee United have rejected two bids from the Premier League club for 17-year-old centre-back Harry Souttar.
Hughes wants to strengthen his British core and was also interested in Nathan Redmond before the England Under-21 star instead joined Southampton.
