West Brom have rejected a transfer request from striker Saido Berahino. Albion rejected an offer for the 22-year-old from Tottenham last week and have reiterated their intention to keep him at the Hawthorns. They stated their position is unchanged from 18 August, when chairman Jeremy Peace said that selling the player was “simply not on our agenda”. Berahino was dropped at the weekend, with boss Tony Pulis saying he was not in the right frame of mind to play. In the absence of the England Under-21 striker, who scored 20 goals last season, the Baggies were beaten 3-2 by Chelsea – a result which left them bottom of the Premier League table with one point from three games.
