West Brom reject second Tottenham bid for Saido Berahino, reports suggest £22m offer

Saido Berahino Albion

West Brom have confirmed they have rejected a second bid from Tottenham for Saido Berahino.

West Bromwich Albion have confirmed on their official website that they have rejected a second bid from Tottenham Hotspur for striker Saido Berahino.

Berahino, 22, hit 20 goals for West Brom last season, and his performances established himself as one of the brightest young forwards in English football.

Those displays have now attracted interest though, and with Spurs desperately searching for attacking reinforcements to aid Harry Kane, Berahino has become their top target.

Last week, the Baggies confirmed on their official website that they had snubbed a bid from Tottenham for the Burundi-born hit man, but that hasn't deterred Spurs yet.

Today, West Brom have again taken to their official website to confirm that a second bid from the White Hart Lane club has been rejected, with chairman Jeremy Peace sending out a very clear message over the striker's future at The Hawthorns.

"Our position remains unchanged," said Peace. "The sale of this player is not on our agenda," he added, firing a warning to their Premier League rivals.

The Telegraph report that Tottenham's bid was worth £22m, which is £3m short of Peace's valuation of £25m. Whether Spurs choose to make another bid closer to that asking price remains to be seen, but their pursuit of Berahino appears to be ongoing as they look to reunite him with his former England Under-21 strike partner Harry Kane.
