West Brom boss Pulis happy to secure Berahino to longer deal

West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis is open to extending Saido Berahino's deal.

Berahino's contract has two seasons to run with Albion clearly looking at a long-term deal some time in the near future.

"I'm not a great lover (of long contracts) unless you know (it is for) Saido. We signed Ryan Shawcross on a long contract (at Stoke from Manchester United). Shawcross was a bed-rock of what that club was going to do, so he was signed on a long contract. That's a different matter. There's always four or five players within the group who you hope and pray stay at the football club.

"But there's a lot of players who move up and down and they are the ones that I think you have to be very careful with."
