Parlour suggests Berahino to Spurs could still happen in January

Saido Berahino

Former Gunner Ray Parlour feels aido Berahino needs to get his head down and work hard if he wants to join Tottenham Hotspur.

Former Gunner Ray Parlour told talkSPORT that he feels Saido Berahino could still become a Tottenham Hotspur player this January.

Spurs tried to do a deal for the young forward on transfer deadline day earlier this week, but West Brom rejected their approach which left the player voicing his frustrations on social media site Twitter.

Parlour has encouraged him to get his head down, to work hard and feels that things will happen as a result.

“What does he do because it’s no good training every day and then not playing at the weekend. Berahino now has to say okay, we’ve got the European Championship coming up and if he can bang in whatever goals up to January then he’ll probably get his move anyway,” he told talkSPORT.

Common sense approach

A common sense approach is the best one for the player because he can’t allow himself to sit on the bench or play in the reserves and simply slip out of form.

He may have wanted to leave and has vowed not to play for West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace on Twitter, but he’s harming his chances of a future move to Tottenham and his England career through any refusal to play.

If he wants a move, he needs to continuously push Tottenham to remind them why he would be a valuable addition to their squad, even though a move now can’t happen until the winter transfer window.
