West Brom will not sell striker Saido Berahino to Premier League rivals Newcastle this month.

Steve McClaren's Newcastle side have been heavily linked with Berahino but are currently third from bottom, just seven points behind the Baggies.

And Albion chairman Jeremy Peace does not want Berahino's goals to fuel a surge out of the drop zone that could potentially drag his club into the relegation mix.

Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have also been linked with the promising young English forward, but Albion have still not received any formal bids in this window.

The Express & Star understands Peace will listen to offers of more than £20million, as long as they're not from Newcastle.

It would take an outrageously large offer for the club to sell last season's top scorer to the struggling North East side.

Spurs made four bids for Berahino in the summer, but although their final offer totalled £23m it was due to be paid in instalments and was rejected by Peace.

Although the frosty relationship between the two clubs has since thawed, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has cooled his own interest in Berahino after the striker's frustrating first half of the season.

No clubs are believed to be getting near Peace's valuation.
