West Bromwich Albion did what it does best Sunday, squeeze out a point from a scoreless draw in a 0-0 stalemate with Middlesbrough.
But the Saido Berahino saga continues to unravel with reports suggesting Berahino is now prepared to see out the final year of his contract before sealing a lucrative free transfer next summer. But due to all the rumors surrounding the forward during the final weekend before the transfer deadline, manager Tony Pulis said he benched Berahino to "clear his head". Meanwhile, the Baggies managed 12 shots but couldn't find the back of the net for the first time this season. In other news, Jonny Evans overcame injury to start while new signing Brendan Galloway made his first start since arriving on loan from Everton. Aug 28 - 10:34 AM

Despite swirling rumors of a transfer out of the Hawthorns, Saido Berahino has been described as "available" for Albion heading into the season opener against Crystal Palace.

Tony Pulis described Berahino as working hard in training but didn't commit to the forward starting the season opener. It seems likely that Berahino will be held out of Albion's initial matches until his future is resolved. It wouldn't do for management to finally decide to sell him only to see the deal undermined by an early-season injury. Berahino has great potential if he's going to be a starter but until September 1, it isn't clear when or where that might happen.

A decision on the future of forward Saido Berahino at West Bromwich Albion is expected to be made in the coming days.

The Baggies have seen their £16 million bid for West Ham forward Diafra Sakho accepted this summer and will now work out personal terms and a medical, but the deal is expected to go through, which could then allow the club to cash in on Berahino with only a year left on his current deal. Crystal Palace and Stoke City have each made a £20 million bid for the 22-year-old. Said assistant manager Dave Kemp: "That side of business is in our hands. So, we'll have to see what happens with that, but he has trained hard pre-season and played hard. We'll have to see which way that goes."

"Sky Sports" report that Stoke City has submitted a £20 million bid for West Bromwich Albion forward Saido Berahino.

The 22-year-old recently rejected a new contract offer from West Brom in favor of leaving the club with only one year left on his current deal. Meanwhile, Watford looks to have dropped out of the race to sign Berahino with manager Walter Mazzarri content with the current squad at Vicarage Road. But the Potters have officially made the first move with Crystal Palace also reportedly weighing up a bid. Berahino has played in both of the club's preseason friendlies this summer, scoring two goals against Kidderminster over the weekend.

Reports around the country claim West Brom is going all out to improve its attacking line this summer with news concerning Saido Berahino and Diafra Sakho.

Amid rumors of a £16 million move to Stoke City this summer, West Brom have offered Berahino a new four-year contract despite a frosty relationship with manager Tony Pulis that resulted in multiple benchings and a spot in the coach's dog house. And due to the down year, Berahino looks to have lost out on a proposed move to Tottenham that nearly went through in the winter. Meanwhile, the Baggies are said to be planning a £15 million for West Ham striker Diafra Sakho, who submitted an official transfer request this week.

Southampton are set to join the race for Saido Berahino after selling Sadio Mane to Liverpool.

Berahino is reportedly on the market and Stoke City have been discussed as the top destination for the 22-year-old English player. Southampton will now join the sweepstakes and try to pry the youngster away. He would be a great addition to already signed Nathan Redmond and could play alongside Graziano Pelle.

It appears as though Stoke City will emerge as the victor in the Premier League race to sign Saido Berahino this summer.

Reports across England claim West Bromwich Albion has accepted a £16 million bid for the 22-year-old as the Potters will offer a long-term contract and a wage package worth £70,000-a-week. The Baggies originally shot down Stoke City's offer of £15 million earlier this week in the hopes of getting more in return for Berahino. But after failing to land a better deal, they came back to the bargaining table. Berahino scored only four Premier League goals last season after 14 the season prior, drawing £20 million-plus bids from Spurs and Newcastle.

A Saido Berahino move seems like it may finally happen after Stoke City and West Ham have been heavily linked this summer.

It didn't go particularly well for the player or his club last summer with Berahino and West Brom having a falling out over his desire to move to White Hart Lane. A season playing only sporadically seems to have diminished his value and his likely list of suitors. With no mention of Spurs, the Potters and Hammers seem set to battle it out for Berahino's signature. Watford is also mentioned as a possible destination. West Brom look like they'll also pay a price for last summer's drama as Berahino has only a year left on his deal and the price looks to be lower than it would have been if he'd moved to the Lane last summer.

Saido Berahino and Ben Foster face late fitness tests ahead of West Brom's match with West Ham at the Hawthorns.

The Baggies had their say on the title race on Monday when they held Spurs to a draw. The outcome was a big deal in the grander scheme of the title race but it might have taken it's toll on a couple of West Brom players. Saido Berahino and Ben Foster both came away nursing ankle injuries and neither are sufficiently recovered to be definite participants against West Ham on Saturday. Check both as close to kick-off as you can before making any line-up decisions.

West Brom will be without two key starters for Monday night's away fixture against second-place Tottenham due to a pair of ankle injuries.

Manager Tony Pulis confirmed that forward Saido Berahino sustained an ankle injury in a 2-0 loss to Arsenal on Thursday and could not recover in time to face Spurs. The club switched to a 4-3-3 to accommodate Salomon Rondon and Craig Gardner's return to the starting lineup. Meanwhile, Ben Foster will also miss Monday night's match due to an ankle injury discovered the day after the Arsenal match, which Pulis said could cause the starting keeper to miss the weekend match against West Ham as well with Boaz Myhill set to fill in.

Saido Berahino was denied twice from the penalty spot as Watford won at the Hawthorns.

The season-long drama between Tony Pulis and Saido Berahino took another turn as the young striker twice had a chance to equalize Ben Watson's opener. Twice Berahino failed sentencing the Baggies to a home loss that drops them below the Hornets in the standings.

West Bromwich Albion has dodged a massive bullet after the FA confirmed forward Saido Berahino won't be charged for violent conduct.

Berahino was involved in an incident against Everton on Saturday after kicking out at James McCarthy while the referee wasn't watching in the first half of the Baggies' 1-0 win at Goodison Park. Roberto Martinez claimed to spot the incident but an FA panel ruled the video footage inconclusive, clearing Berahino of a potential three-match ban for violent conduct. Berahino looks like a solid fantasy pickup after receiving his first Premier League start since Week 11. With a big-money move likely this summer, Berahino is primed to return to the form that saw him score 14 goals last season.

In the never-ending saga that is the transfer rumors of Saido Berahino, Newcastle United have prepared a bid to land the West Brom forward.

If there is an award for Most Talked About Player to be Transferred over the past 8 months, it is surely Saido Berahino. Tottenham couldn't get a deal done for him over the summer and are still kicking the tires to come to terms with the Baggies. Now Newcastle have entered the fray and they are claiming they are willing to outbid Spurs for his services. Newcastle are on a veritable shopping spree in this window. It will be interesting to see how their side looks if they somehow add Berahino to the mix.

Saido Berahino netted a brace in West Brom's fourth round FA Cup tie against Peterborough but it was only good enough for a draw.

With Berahino reportedly not going anywhere in the January transfer window, Tony Pulis might as well start using him and getting goals and/or rebuilding what must be sagging value. Things are off to a good start with the brace against Peterborough even if it wasn't enough for a win. Pulis side faces a replay against the League One side in February at the ABAX Stadium.
Jan 30 - 3:58 PM

Sources are reporting that West Brom is refusing to sell Saido Berahino to Spurs, Newcastle or anyone else during the January window.

Berahino's contract is running down and he's not playing much so it's hard to see how continuing to hold out on a sale is helping West Brom's financial cause. To make matters worse, during a season where they aren't doing well on the pitch they aren't benefiting from Berahino's talents on the pitch or from another player that they could buy with money from a sale. Assuming that they keep this posture there's no reason to think that Berahino's part-time status will change over the second half of the season.
