Spurs target could return for West Brom on Saturday

West Brom assistant Dave Kemp admitted Saido Berahino could return for the Baggies against Stoke after his exile.

The striker was dropped again as Albion edged out Port Vale 5-3 on penalties in the Capital One Cup following a forgettable 0-0 draw after extra-time at The Hawthorns.

"That's something we can assess between now and then, we'll see what happens as it unfolds. Once we get to next Tuesday (the transfer deadline) it'll be clearer.

"He was considered tonight but there's other stuff. This transfer window is upsetting not just to Saido but to everyone.

"He's training fine, you can imagine he's a young man and there's a lot going on and your eye might not be on the ball. You have to be totally focused to perform.

"The manager has to make a decision."
