West Brom have rejected an offer from Tottenham for striker Saido Berahino.
Spurs have been linked with Berahino for much of the summer and finally made their opening move for the England Under-21 international on Tuesday.
The bid, reported to be £15m, was swiftly turned down with Albion chairman Jeremy Peace insisting the club have ”no interest” in selling the 22-year-old.
Despite the recent club-record arrival of Salomon Rondon, for #12million from Zenit St Petersburg, West Brom remain keen to keep one of the country’s top English talents.
”We have no interest in selling Saido which is what I have told (Tottenham chairman) Daniel Levy,” Peace said in a statement on the club’s official website.
“I know we are living in an age where no club can say ’never’ about the possibility of selling a player.
“However, the prospect of selling Saido is simply not on our agenda.
“We are going forward with Saido very much in our plans and still striving to add players to improve the balance of our squad.”
