West Brom striker Berahino loving his new nickname

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino has been dubbed 'Defoe' by teammates this season.

Berahino's goalscoring exploits for the Baggies and England Under-21s have earned him a new £15,000-a-week deal - not a bad increase from the £850 a week he was on.

Baggies teammate Victor Anichebe said: "He's an unbelievable finisher. I call him Defoe after Jermain at Tottenham because that's how he is.

"He loves it. He calls himself Defoe. He follows him on Instagram and he thinks he is Defoe!"
