West Brom are looking to sell their 21-year-old striker Saido Berahino, with both Liverpool and Tottenham interested in the England international.

Berahino has been repeatedly linked with a move away from The Hawthorns in the January transfer window and speculation only increased on Friday when technical director Terry Burton refused to rule out the prospect of him leaving.

“He [Berahino] is worth what some club will pay for him. It’s like any player, if a club wants a player and they want him bad enough, if they’ve got the finances they will try and do that.

“Tony will do whatever’s best to try and get results for the club.”

There is a sense of exasperation behind the scenes over Berahino’s conduct since he was called up to the England senior squad in November and contract talks have been shelved due to a drunk-driving charge.

Tony Pulis has been assured of transfer funds this month, which goes against Albion’s usual policy in the winter market, thus many of the club’s eleven summer signings who have not performed that well might be allowed to leave to raise further  finance.

West Brom are currently only a point above the relegation zone and Tony Pulis has 18 league games remaining to change their fortunes.
