Many wondered if this would be the next step with Tottenham Hotspur firming up their interest in Saido Berahino.

West Bromwich Albion have today confirmed that the youngster had put in a transfer request, but that has been denied also.

A statement on wba.co.uk from late this afternoon was titled ‘Club’s position remains unchanged.’

‘WEST Bromwich Albion have received a written transfer request from Saido Berahino. The request has been rejected and the club`s position remains unchanged from that outlined in the statement from Chairman Jeremy Peace of August 18.’

As is usual the statement ends by stating the club will make no further comment.

What this does to the saga, especially with his omission from the squad against Chelsea this weekend, remains to be seen and in the current game how far the club can hold to this position will be interesting to watch as clearly the player wants to go, so is it a case of just waiting for Spurs to meet our valuation of the England Under 21 international and no doubt future England regular.

It’s also being reported by the likes of the Daily Mail that Spurs have now come back in with an improved £21million offer or will do shortly and we are said to be on the verge of capturing Jonny Evans and David Marshall from Manchester United and Cardiff City respectively.

  • Spurs fan come in peace lol….reckon we all want this bloody saga over. ..think this latest statement puts your club in the position that we’ve done all we can however Spurs have put in an acceptable offer scenario. ..got to say player power has now gone crazy and also suspect you lot want shot of him now. ..let’s face it who wants a sulky player who’s made it common knowledge he wants out. …brings back memories of Berbatov

  • From a spurs fan, I hope WBA stand firm and do not sell. All to often, clubs who think they are bigger behave this way late in the window and the perceived smaller club get pushed into a corner. Its happened all to often to us spurs fans so I know how it feels and glad to see a club finally standing firm. Spurs and levy have behaved like amateurs in starting a season with 1 striker on the books and I hope WBA hanging onto berahino is the beginning of the end for levy.

  • Come on the lad wants to improve himself and unite with Kane, WBA should stop posturing and just get the transfer done, they’ll be making a massive profit and have the replacements already. Why drag this out when the player obviously wants to leave? They won’t get much for him next summer as he’ll only have a year left on his contract then I believe? The WBA chairman will struggle to stop this going through and if he does he’ll have an unhappy player on his hands.
