Pulis: Berahino staying put

Cape Town - West Brom manager Tony Pulis says the club is still working hard to strengthen the first team before the transfer window closes, while any sale of Saido Berahino has also been ruled out.

Pulis confirmed on Tuesday that Wigan Athletic forward Callum McManaman was just one of several players for whom bids have been registered, reports Football411.

"We've had bids for three or four players. You put them in and see what the clubs want,” he told Goal.

"It's not just him (McManaman), there are three or four other people we've asked and enquired about. Then we'll take a view about value for money and what is right for us.

"Some have been turned down, some are going to come back to us, some are negotiating, we'll take a view then when we're in a position to assess what we've got and what we haven't got."

Meanwhile, Jeremy Peace, the club’s chairman, says that forward Saido Berahino will not be sold any time the soon.

Berahino has starred for the struggling Albion - scoring nine goals in 22 league appearances so far this season - and attracted the attention of several larger clubs.

"I said in the autumn that the club had no interest in selling Saido and that remains the case,” Peace told the club’s website.

“Unless Tony decides otherwise, the view will surely be that he is far too important to us to consider trading.

“His goals are capable of keeping us in the Premier League and would be hugely difficult to replace.”

The club has confirmed that two other players are on their way out. Silvestre Varela’s loan from Porto has been cancelled by mutual consent and Sebastian Blanco is currently in talks to return to Argentina to join San Lorenzo.
