Liverpool could reportedly sign striker target Saido Berahino during the January transfer window, after his current club West Bromwich Albion admitted that they could sell their star striker to bring in reinforcements to aid the manager in their battle to stay in the Premier League.
The Baggies technical director Terry Burton has revealed that new manager Tony Pulis is completely in charge and if he wants to sell someone to help the club progress, they will sanction the same.
Berahino has been constantly linked with a move away from the club following his impressive start to the season with the Reds, his biggest admirers. The striker has himself admitted that he will look to move away to realise his dreams of playing in the Champions League.
"He tries to win football matches and if he needs to sell somebody to do something else, he will sell them. He will do whatever is best to get results for the club and that could involve any aspect," Burton said, as quoted by the Mirror.
"Whatever he wants, we will work our hardest to make happen. Tony is in total charge," the West Brom technical director added.
However, Burton has warned interested clubs, which also includes Tottenham that it will take a substantial bid to prise the striker away from the club as the manager will not accept a small amount.
"I don't think he (Pulis) would take that small amount of money," Burton added.
The England U21 striker, who was recently called up to the senior Three Lions squad is contracted to the Baggies until 2017 and was offered a new contract earlier in the season. But the technical director has revealed that contract talks have been put on hold for the time being.
"Yes the club have just put that on hold for now. He had quite a lot going on at one time and they have just put it on hold to let things settle down and see where we go," Burton concluded.
