Tottenham make contact with West Brom over £25m target

But is is believed Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has made contact with the Hawthorns outfit in the last 24 hours to try and resurrect a deal before Monday’s 11pm January transfer window deadline.

London Evening Standard claim a deal all depends on whether Peace chances his stance on Berahino, with him believed to be unwilling to discuss any deal for the England U21 striker unless he receives a bid for at least £25m.

Newcastle have reportedly matched the Baggies’ asking price but the report claims Berahino favours a move to White Hart Lane.

The contact between the clubs was predominantly regarding West Brom’s loan move for Spurs midfielder Alex Pritchard but it is also believed there have been discussions over Berahino.

Peace is understandably reluctant to sell to Newcastle, who are battling alongside the Baggies for Premier League survival.
