The striker has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Stoke City.

West Brom would prefer to sell striker Saido Berahino to Newcastle United than Tottenham Hotspur this month, reports the Mirror.

The striker is expected to leave the Hawthorns in the January transfer window after falling out of favour with manager Tony Pulis.

There is reportedly widespread interest in his services as well; with several Premier League sides all keen on signing the striker, including Newcastle, Stoke City and long-term admirers Tottenham.

However, the Baggies preference is to business with Steve McClaren’s side rather than Spurs, according to the report from the Mirror.

That is because of what happened in the summer transfer window, with the two clubs having failed to agree to terms over the player during a protracted transfer wrangle.

There is every chance he may not leave altogether though, with West Brom reluctant sellers and chairman Jeremy Peace reportedly telling Berahino and his advisors that the young striker will be going nowhere.

The club are determined not to allow the youngster to have his own way, with him having set his heart on a move to White Hart Lane to join Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
