BREAKING: WBA insist Berahino is not leaving

West Bromwich Albion have said Saido Berahino is staying, according to Sky Sources

The England U21 international striker has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Berahino, 22, was the subject of two failed bids from Spurs last week which prompted Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace to make clear the offers were insufficient.

The West Brom forward, who scored 20 goals in 45 games last season, even handed in a transfer request to try and force a move through.

However, the club have today reiterated their stance that the young striker is not for sale and so it seems Berahino will remain at the West Midlands club.

West Brom manager Tony Pulis has plenty of attacking options at his disposal after bringing in Rickie Lambert and Salomon Rondon from Liverpool and Zenit St Petersburg respectively.

United duo move to West Brom

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans, who was also linked with Everton, has moved to West Brom on a four-year contract, for an undisclosed fee.

The Northern Ireland international, was the second-longest serving player at Old Trafford behind Wayne Rooney and made 198 appearances during his time at United.

Also following Evans to the Hawthorns is Danish goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard, who has signed a two-year contract with the Baggies on a free transfer.

The 31-year-old was brought in by Sir Alex Ferguson back in January 2011 and has since gone on to feature 29 times for the Red Devils.
