The relationship between Tottenham and West Brom became strained over the summer, as the clubs fell out as Spurs tried to sign Saido Berahino.

Today they went someway towards patching things up, as Alex Pritchard moved to the Baggies on loan until the end of the season.

Pritchard was expected to feature in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad this season, but after an injury-hit campaign, a move to get regular football makes sense for everyone.

With the future of Saido Berahino rumbling on, re-establishing a dialog with West Brom can’t have done Tottenham’s hopes of landing the player any harm.

Newcastle have bid for the player, but the Baggies are said to be reluctant to sell to a club that they are competing with to avoid relegation.



  1. Two very simple questions to be answered are despite all the hype “Do Spurs really need Berahino? and Is Berahino better than Son or Chadli in terms of number of goals he might potentially score?” £25 Million is £10 million too much for a player who has the ability but still only a potential..Berahino going to Newcastle all not achieve anymore than turning Berahino into an ordinary player.The only option for him to become a better player is to be able to work with Pochetino who has proven his ability of turning a potential into a super talent as long as the player has the right attitude.Berahino must only move to Spurs.Any other move will be a mistake.As it is Berahino is not any better than Son.
