Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Berahino move inevitable, Townsend swap could work

An update on Tottenham and West Brom's potential deals.

Saido Berahino's exit from West Bromwich Albion is now inevitable, report The Telegraph.

Berahino has struggled to win over boss Tony Pulis this season, and The Telegraph claim he has recently been late for team meetings.

It is claimed Tottenham are weighing up whether to re-ignite their interest - although the fear for West Brom may not be that they do not want to bring him in, and certainly not for the price discussed in the summer.

The key to the deal could be Andros Townsend, who is a transfer target for Tony Pulis.

The report claims a swap deal is a potential solution for both parties, with Townsend seeking first team football to aid his Euro 2016 chances.

The Mirror report Spurs want a whopping £14 million for the winger, who has been playing for their under-21 side over the past month.

This would shave a substantial portion of the Berahino fee and even leave Spurs paying as little or less than £10 million for the striker - but both sides would likely have to compromise. 

West Brom's interest in Townsend is complicated by Aston Villa and Newcastle also being keen, with The Mirror clear that Spurs want a sale and not a loan.
