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.

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.

Saido Berahino was questionable coming off the international break but he started and scored the only goal of the match as West Brom beat Sunderland 1-0 at the Hawthorns.

West Brom had slumped in recent weeks but the visit of Sunderland provided the tonic they needed. Saido Berahino, Salomon Rondon, and Jonny Evans overcame doubts about their fitness to contribute to the victory that sees the Baggies move to 11 points and twelfth place in the table at least temporarily. The goal was not a thing of beauty with Costel Pantilimon fumbling a ball in the box that subsequently fell at Berahino's feet for him to draw away from the keeper and then tap in. It was Tony Pulis football to be sure.

With doubts over the health of Saido Berahino, the Baggies face a major issue generating a meaningful attack.

Berahino is, without question, West Brom's greatest goal threat this season. That isn't a huge compliment because the Baggies aren't rich in attacking options but the news that he might miss out is definitely big news for Tony Pulis' side. Coming off of two consecutive poor showings, the visit of Sunderland should all but guarantee a win and a chance to get things going in the right direction again. Instead, key absences could see the Baggies drop points that they may well need down the line.

Saido Berahino scored the game-winning goal for West Brom in their 1-0 win over rivals Aston Villa.

Berahino started the match after having a conversation with Tony Pulis this week about his comments earlier in the season. Berahino seems to be on good terms with Pulis now and should be featured in the starting XI going forward. This was a big win for West Brom, who took three points from their rivals and now sit in 10th place in the table. Berahino and Jose Rondon seems to be a good tandem and should trouble opposing defenses this season. Don't be surprised to see them finish in the top 12 this season.

Saido Berahino may or may not be welcomed back to the starting eleven this week after his deadline day tantrum.

I recognize that this isn't particularly helpful but we can only report the information that we have. Tony Pulis has been noncommittal on if and when Saido Berahino might be thrown back into the mix for the Baggies. For a team that has been struggling to score all season logic would dictate that the club get what they can from the want-away forward but Pulis is an old school guy and may be willing to sacrifice immediate returns to ensure that his squad is in harmony. If you can hold out on making a decision then you should consider doing so because Berahino against Aston Villa is a solid match-up derby match or no. If you have to make a decision before you see starting line-ups then it's probably best to sit/ignore Berahino for another week.

Saido Berahino played for West Brom today despite having a run-in with management just last week, but he couldn't provide the difference for his team as they drew 0-0 against Southampton.

It was an incredibly boring match between the two teams and Berahino couldn't provide the difference for West Brom. It was good to see him come on, as West Brom could certainly use him in the coming weeks as a source of goals. We would expect him and Rondon to start next week if they are both fit. As for Southampton, they started the match without Sadio Mane, who wasn't fit enough after returning late from international duty. Expect him to start next week.

Saido Berahino had a tumultuous summer that ended in him staying at the Hawthorns for at least the next few months. His status now remains a bit of an unknown.

The process of bringing Saido Berahino back into the squad and starting someone who is clearly one of the most talented attacking players in that squad will not be a happy one for the no-nonsense Tony Pulis. Throwing him right back in to the starting line-up essentially condones Berahino's poor behavior while sitting him punishes the club and supporters by not putting the best product on the pitch. Managers should monitor the situation carefully before jumping in on Berahino as a starter regardless of format.

Saido Berahino has taken to Twitter to voice, err, type his displeasure at West Brom as they continue to refuse to sell the attacker to Spurs despite four bids being put forward.

It isn't quite the drama of Peter Odemwingie leaving training camp and driving to London on deadline day in hopes of inspiring his club to sell but it is certainly the digital equivalent. With the deadline approaching rapidly, Berahino had better hope that a fifth offer is accepted or that he can find a clever PR person to help him talk his way out of this because he is likely to be a very unpopular guy around the Hawthorns if he ends up staying at the club at least through January.
