West Brom are preparing to offer Saido Berahino a new deal in an attempt to prevent the striker from going on strike, according to the Metro.
The England under-21 international has missed the Baggies’ last two Premier League games – including the narrow defeat to Chelsea – due to the speculation linking him with a move to Tottenham, the Metro report.
And after a deal with Spurs fell through, Berahino tweeted to say that he would never play for chairman Jeremy Peace again, and hinted that he had been treated poorly by his current club (via Metro).
In an attempt to keep hold of their prized asset however, the Midlands side are planning to offer the 22-year-old a new contract that would see him pocket £50,000 a week, the Metro report.
While Tony Pulis has added both Rickie Lambert and Salomon Rondon during the summer, Berahino would probably have been the man to help both players adjust to the club’s system, so it would be a major boost if he agreed a surprising U-turn.
