Saido Berahino future at West Brom depends on Peace - Tony Pulis
West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace currently holds Saido Berahino's future in his hands, according to manager Tony Pulis.
Berahino threatened to go on strike in September when West Brom rejected numerous approaches from Spurs and it is still unclear whether the striker has a future with the club.
However, with Peace determined to get value for the 22-year-old following interest from various Premier League clubs and a reported offer of £18 million from Newcastle United, Pulis says that the decision is out of his hands.

"The chairman will decide whether Saido goes or stays," he said. "The chairman will make decisions financially. As much as it's the player, it's the financial deal and like I say, we'll leave it with Jeremy to sort it."
Rumours of an imminent transfer were sparked after Berahino failed to even make the bench for Tuesday's 1-0 win against Bristol City. But Pulis revealed that his absence was due to illness and not for other reasons.
"If he hadn't been ill he'd have been playing," he said. "He's not been well, he's picked up a bug the same as [Rickie] Lambert and a few of the other lads over the past few weeks."
