Liverpool, Bournemouth, WBA


Liverpool, Bournemouth, WBA

Liverpool - Jurgen Klopp has signed a new contract at Liverpool until 2022 to ward off PSG interest. The French club have Klopp on a list of potential successors to Laurent Blanc who couldn't deliver the Champions Lague trophy the owners require.

In other Liverpool news, proceedings against defender Mamadou Sakho in relation to anti-doping violations have been dismissed.

Bournemouth - Eddie Howe has signed highly promising 19-year-old English  youngster Lewis Cook for £17-million + add-ons, which could raise the fee to £10-million. The central midfielder has signed from Championship side Leeds United. That may well put paid to the stories of Ryan Mason going to Bournemouth and given the figure involved may indicate Mason isn't leaving Tottenham.

WBA - The Midlands club have offered Saido Berahino a new 4-year contract, he has turned down all previous offers while Peace puts too high a price on his shoulders, not only for what he hasn't achieved yet, but because of the length of his contract. He is English so being home grown comes at a premium, still they are asking more than anyone is willing to pay. In a year he will be out of contract and can leave for free.

Having burnt his bridges at WBA he would be mad to sign the new offer when he can wait a year and command a higher salary, plus a higher signing on fee for a new club. His situation has been badly handled by Peace who has done WBA no favours. Berahino is known to still want to leave WBA so it looks highly unlikely he will strap himself to the whim of Jeremy Peace, especially if Berahino feels Peace has already broken one promise.

He demonstrates why youngsters must be careful when they go to a club that will price them out of any future move, it would be harmful to their career to be stuck where they possibly don't want to be. This is the second striker who has tried to get away and been prevented in such a way that they have to take drastic action.
