Report: Saido Berahino has not rejected contract offer at West Bromwich Albion

West Brom - The Hawthorns

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino has been heavily linked with Tottenham Hotspur in recent times.

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino has not rejected a contract offer at the club, according to the Birmingham Mail.

There were suggestions that Berahino has turned down the chance to sign a new deal at West Brom, worth £50,000-a-week, but apparently these reports were wide of the mark.

The Baggies have not presented the 22-year-old striker with a new deal, meaning that he remains on his contract deal – which is said to be worth £15,000-a-week.

Berahino’s future at the Hawthorns has been much speculated on, due to Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in him during the summer transfer window.

Berahino handed in a transfer request to try and force a move to White Hart Lane, but the Birmingham Mail suggest that he is currently focused on getting back to his best for the Baggies.

The young forward has not performed particularly well so far this season, with only three goals to his name, and it seems the uncertainty around his future may have affected his form on the pitch.

Berahino’s contract expires at the end of next season, meaning the Baggies still have time to try and come to an agreement with the Burundi-born striker.
