The 22-year-old had been hoping to complete a summer move to White Hart Lane, only to see bids from the North London side turned down by West Brom, leading to the England Under 21 international to take to Twitter to issue a strike threat, prior to deleting the offending tweet.
Baggies boss Tony Pulis has commented on the player’s admirable attitude at the training ground following the closure of the summer transfer window, remarking;
“Saido came in and was treated like everyone else, he trained well and I had no problems with his attitude,”
“He got his head down and we’ll assess him over the next few days. We’re keen to draw a line under it all and concentrate on playing football matches again.”
From a purely footballing standpoint it’s hard to see how Pulis will involve Berahino in his starting eleven given the West Brom’s club record purchase of Salomon Rondon, as well as the addition of veteran Rickie Lambert.
