The Daily Mail have our punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern looking up with shock after they hear that Saido Berahino has parted company with his agent, Aidy Ward.
Ward is of course the man behind the Raheem Sterling saga, and is not a popular man in the Tavern – and that is putting it mildly.
We think that Berahino will go much further without the troublesome agent – and that clubs would much rather negotiate with the player now he has got rid of a man who has tanked the reputation of not only his client in Sterling, but also himself as well.
Berahino is one of the best young forwards around, and we think at some point, he will look to leave West Brom, with a host of top clubs already expressing tentative interest in the player.
Liverpool fans. Do you think Sterling needs to do the same thing? Let us know your thoughts below.
