West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace has insisted star striker Saido Berahino is not for sale.

Berahino, who had been a target for Newcastle United earlier this summer, has been the subject of a bid from Tottenham Hotspur.

However, the Baggies rejected the offer and mae clear that the forward is staying at the Hawthorns.

Peace said: “We have no interest in selling Saido which is what I have told (Spurs chairman) Daniel Levy.

“I know we are living in an age where no club can say ‘never’ about the possibility of selling a player.

“However, the prospect of selling Saido is simply not on our agenda.

“We are going forward with Saido very much in our plans and still striving to add players to improve the balance of our squad.”

Newcastle were interested in Berahino this summer, and there were thoughts they may have turned their attention back to the player after their bid to sign Charlie Austin stalled.
