Tottenham target Saido Berahino will play for West Brom despite strike threat

Posted by

Tottenham target Saido Berahino will return to the West Brom first-team set-up despite his recent threat to go on strike after he failed to secure a move to White Hart Lane during the summer transfer window according to ESPN.

The 22-year-old took to Twitter to voice his frustration after a move to Spurs was not blocked by West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace.

Berahino tweeted ‘”Sad how i cant say exactly how the club has treated me but i can officially say i will never play (for) Jeremy Peace” and then subsequently deleted the tweet some time late.

The PFA have since got involved in a move to ease the tension between West Brom and their forward and chief executive Gordon Taylor has stated;

“He will be playing,”

“We have made contact with both the club and the player and we are very hopeful the matter will be resolved.”

Berahino may however struggle to force his way back into Tony Pulis’s starting eleven following West Brom’s club record purchase of Venezuelan international Salomon Rondon, and the presence of former Liverpool veteran Rickie Lambert could also prove an obstacle to the England Under 21 international’s progress at The Hawthorns.
