Want away Tottenham target given time to cool down

West Brom have granted want away star Saido Berahino extra time off as the fallout of his transfer saga rumbles on, reports the Evening Standard.

The England Under-21 star was the subject of four bids from Tottenham Hotspur over the course of the window, with two of them coming in its dying hours.

The 14 goal hitman reacted angrily to the blocked move, taking to Twitter to vent his frustration.

Now, he is reported to be given extra time away from the squad in an effort to soothe tensions emanating out of the Hawthorns.

Head coach Tony Pulis can expect most of the squad not called up on international duty back for training on Friday, but the 22-year old star has been given until Monday to return.

Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace has slammed Spurs’ role in the saga, stating ‘we are now left with the task of repairing the damage created by this unfortunate episode.’

Peace described the goal scorer as ‘key player’ and believes the North London side deployed tactics to ‘get him out of our club cheaply.’

It is thought that clear the air talks with Pulis are planned, from whom they rejected a transfer request from in August.
