West Brom will prevent Saido Berahino going on strike – by offering him a new contract with a £25million buy-out clause, writes Neil Moxley in the Sunday People.

The England Under-21 striker reports back to training on Sunday and will be hit with a maximum fine of two weeks’ wages – around £50,000 – for tweeting that he would never play for chairman Jeremy Peace again.

But there is a determination within the Midlands club to repair a damaged relationship with Berahino, which spiralled out of control during the summer transfer window.

West Brom are now stuck with an unhappy player - at least until the window reopens in January - but remain adamant they will not sell him below their minimum asking price of £25m.
