Steve Clarke tips Saido Berahino to have a “massive” future at West Bromwich Albion when the striker pens a new Baggies deal.

The 20-year-old forward has been attracting interest from Arsenal and Chelsea after scoring 12 goals for the Baggies and England Under-21s this term, including a strike at Old Trafford.

However, Berahinho is expected to sign a new West Brom deal designed to dissuade potential suitors from making a bid, and Clarke heaped praise on the Baggies youngster.

“It’ll be great for Saido first and foremost, he’s a young boy and maybe he’s become a little bit distracted by the fact that it’s been going on for so long,” the Mirror quotes Clarke as saying.

“That’s been a little negative – but there’s not too many negatives surrounding Saido this season. He’s been a breath of fresh air in the squad and a revelation.

“When he signs his contract, he’s got a massive part to play over the rest of the season for us. The next stage is for him to keep doing what he’s been doing and try to improve. He can start games, he doesn’t have to worry about that.”
