Peace: Berahino going nowhere

Who is the Bundesliga’s “Mr. 100%” from the penalty spot?

West Bromwich Albion chairman Jeremy Peace has dispelled any notion of Saido Berahino leaving the club before next week's transfer deadline.

After the Baggies rejected two bids from Tottenham Hotspur for the 22-year old striker, Peace met with Berahino at the club's training ground.

Peace said: "I have informed Saido that he will not be transferred during this summer window and that he is staying at the club.

"As I have made clear from the moment Tottenham lodged their first bid for Saido on August 18, selling our top goalscorer was never on our agenda this summer. 

"Our plans have always been based on Saido being part of our squad for the 2015-16 season. But there are two other good reasons why he will not be sold.

"Firstly, had we ever entertained the notion of selling him we have not received an offer anywhere near attractive enough from Tottenham Hotspur. 

"Not only have the offers been too low as a valuation of the player, but they have been based on stage-payments and add-ons over a long period which do nothing to reflect Saido's ability and potential."
