Saido Berahino

Saido Berahino was pictured in good spirits during West Brom's training session on Tuesday, despite the club rejecting a bid from Tottenham Hotspur.

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino appears in good spirits, as speculation over his future intensifies.

The Baggies confirmed that a bid had been lodged by Tottenham Hotspur, but they had no intention of selling, as reported The BBC.

Club chairman Jeremy 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."

The Independent report that Tottenham's bid was worth £18 million, and despite Peace's determination to hold onto him, the Baggies will consider an offer of £25 million.

Berahino is an England under-21 international, and impressed last season, netting 20 goals in all competitions.

He appears to be taking the developments in his stride, and unlike other players who have tried to force moves in the past, he is continuing training with a smile on his face, and for West Brom fans, that must be a relief to see.

As for what it means for Tottenham, well they can take the positives, that Berahino is remaining professional and keeping his fitness up, which can only be good for them if there is a sudden change of tide in negotiations.
