Northampton Town have signed West Brom's young striker Saido Berahino on a month's loan.

The 18-year-old, who has four England Under-20 caps, has yet to make his Albion debut.

"Saido is a player that I feel has got the quality and the finishing power to help us," Cobblers boss Gary Johnson told the club websiteexternal-link.

"West Brom think very highly of him and I've seen him play a couple of times for their reserves."

The Burundi-born forward has been at The Hawthorns from under-12 level since fleeing the African nation with his family and claiming political asylum.

Northampton were short of a striker following Marlon Jackson's recall by parent club Bristol City on Wednesday.
