Saido Berahino future at West Bromwich Albion is in serious doubt after it emerged that the striker is considering taking legal action against his team-mate James Morrison, after he was allegedly punched during an altercation in the dressing room following Saturday's 3-3 draw with Cardiff City at the Hawthorns.

Berahino has been left sporting a black eye and the 20-year-old is understood to be furious that the club are not taking any action over the incident.

"What happened is not uncommon in a dressing room and shows the players care," West Brom said in a statement afterwards. "The players involved have apologised. The club has drawn a line under the matter and is now fully focusing on Saturday's important game at Norwich."

Morrison has so far not responded to the complaint.

With Berahino seriously disgruntled at this stance his long-term future at the club must now be in question.

The episode happened after West Brom had allowed Cardiff an equaliser deep into added time on Saturday, for which Berahino was viewed as culpable. With his side leading 3-2 due to Thievy Bifouma's goal, the forward gave up the ball in the fifth minute of injury time and from the subsequent play Mats Moller Daehli scored a crucial equaliser.
