Pulis weary of Berahino saga

Tony Pulis says there are a number of players that could potentially sign for West Brom during the January transfer window while also revealing that Saido Berahino is yet to pen a new deal with the club.

The Baggies have been in talks with Manchester United over midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, although no agreement has yet been reached.

The 23-year-old former England under 21 international, Berahino, has, meanwhile, been a source of frustration for Pulis and the Baggies.

He last played a competitive fixture against Bournemouth in September before being sent to France, twice, in a bid to lose some weight.

Berahino has this week refused to sign a new deal, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

And after doing all he can to support the talented striker, it appears as if Pulis has finally lost his patience.

He said: "The club has offered him a new contract not just this week, but in previous months too, so they've been in negotiations with Saido, so we'll just see how that pans out.

"The deals have been on the table for the boy and his agent – we'll see how that pans out.

"Again, we've hit the funny month. He's only got one more month left of this if he doesn't sign, so that's probably a bonus for me.

"If we sell him we will work very hard to get a replacement in. If we don't sell him, we'll have to work very hard to get him back to what he was 18 months ago."

Pulis added that West Brom are talking to Manchester United, as well to a number of other sides.

He explained: "The two clubs are talking. It's not just one player out there we are interested in. There are a number of players we are interested in."
