Berahino not joining Liverpool, insist West Brom

The 21-year-old has been a revelation in what has been a difficult season for the Baggies and has been linked with the Reds, but the club insist he is going nowhere


West Brom have dismissed talk of striker Saido Berahino joining Premier League rivals Liverpool in the January transfer window.

Berahino has recently been heavily linked with a move away from the club, who sacked head coach Alan Irvine on Monday, with the Reds reportedly at the front of the queue.

But the 16th-placed Baggies appear set to dig their heels in as they look to retain the services of the 21-year-old, who has scored eight goals in all competitions so far this season.

A post on West Brom’s official Twitter account read: “Ok time to clear a few things up. One final time, this Berahino to @LFC story for £23m is and always has been an entire fabrication…”

The club also paid further tribute to Irvine, whose stint with West Brom lasted just six months.

A second tweet read: “A sombre day for staff at The Hawthorns because we have said farewell to a man of great class and dignity #bestwishesAlan.”
