Newcastle’s hopes of signing Saido Berahino this transfer window appear over after West Brom rejected a £24million bid for the striker.
The Magpies have made three bids for Berahino over the past week, the final of which was a straight, cash up front offer, according to the Daily Mirror.
But Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace has remained firm in his stance that the 22-year-old would not be sold, despite the forward being out of favour under Tony Pulis.
Stoke City and Tottenham are also interested in Berahino, with the Potters understood to have seen a £21million bid rejected.
Peace is taking a big risk in not cashing in on the England Under-21 international, who has entered into the final 18 months of his contract at the Hawthorns, but West Brom are still in threat of relegation and have struggled for goals this term.
Despite having only started nine games this term, Berahino remains West Brom’s top goalscorer in all competitions this season, with six.
