West Brom tell Saido Berahino he will not be allowed to leave for Tottenham
West Brom have reiterated that Saido Berahino will not be sold during this summer’s transfer window.
The 22-year-old forward has been the subject of two rejected bids from Tottenham and seen a transfer request turned down, but speculation has persisted that he could soon be plying his trade at White Hart Lane.
But Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace has moved to end such talk by revealing he has spoken to the player and told him he is staying put.
“I have informed Saido that he will not be transferred during this summer window and that he is staying at the club,” he said in a statement.
“As I have made clear from the moment Tottenham lodged their first bid for Saido on August 18, selling our top goalscorer was never on our agenda this summer.”
