West Brom boss Alan Irvine has confirmed that there have been no approaches made for Saido Berahino and that the striker is not for sale next month.
The Baggies hit-man has recently been linked with Liverpool and Spurs amid reports that he’s looking to leave the Midlands club during the coming transfer window.
Berahino has enjoyed a fine start to the 2014/15 campaign, netting eight goals for West Brom, while also earning a call-up to the senior England set-up.
Although his form has dipped over the past few weeks, the 21-year-old is understood to be valued at around £25m, and is a player Brendan Rodgers and Mauricio Pochettino both reportedly admire.
However, Irvine is adamant that no bids have been lodged and reiterated his desire to keep the pacey marksman:
“At the moment it is certainly only speculation. We have had no enquiries whatsoever.” He is quoted by The Express.
“Where the stories have come from I’m not quite sure. January will reveal what is going to happen.
“We may well get some offers for Saido and if we do the club will deal with them.
“The chairman has already said he doesn’t want to sell Saido in January so I’m guessing nothing has changed as far as that is concerned.”
