West Brom boss Tony Pulis says club are yet to receive January bid for Tottenham and Newcastle target

first_img1 Saido Berahino West Brom boss Tony Pulis insists the club have yet to receive a bid for striker Saido Berahino during the January transfer window.Berahino’s future has been uncertain since handing in a transfer request at the start of the season amid several rejected offers from Tottenham.The rumours reignited when the 22-year-old was left out of the matchday squad at Bristol City for Tuesday night’s FA Cup third round replay, before it was confirmed that he was missing through illness.This week Spurs, along with Chelsea and Newcastle, were reported to have tabled bids but Pulis denied that such an approach had been made.WOULD TOTTENHAM BE WISE TO RESIST THE BERAHINO TEMPTATION?Pulis expects the speculation surrounding his joint-top goalscorer to continue until the transfer window closes on February 1.“The present situation is the club has not received any offers at all so everything is speculation and you can’t stop people talking,” said Pulis at his pre-match press conference on Friday.“I’m more disappointed for Saido. I told him at the beginning of the window the circus starts again.“If something happens, something happens and he understands that from the last window.“Unless he’s sold now, tomorrow or the next two days it could go to the deadline – it’s a good story.”last_img read more

Virat Kohli deletes tweet welcoming Anil Kumble as coach in 2016

first_imgVirat Kohli on Thursday deleted a tweet he had put out welcoming Anil Kumble as India coach in June 2016.WATCH FULL VIDEOKumble had stepped down as India coach after a successful one year term at the end India’s Champions Trophy campaign in England. Soon after putting in his papers in, the former India captain said he had stepped down because the BCCI told him that Kohli was not happy with his style of captaincy. “I was informed for the first time yesterday by the BCCI that the Captain had reservations with my ‘style’ and about my continuing as the Head Coach. I was surprised since I had always respected the role boundaries between Captain and Coach. Though the BCCI attempted to resolve the misunderstandings between the Captain and me, it was apparent that the partnership was untenable, and I therefore believe it is best for me to move on,” Kumble wrote on Tuesday in a statement.Kumble’s original contract expired with the team’s Champions Trophy campaign, but the former captain was tipped to get an extension after enjoying a successful run during his year in charge.Last year the BCCI formed the CAC, comprising former players Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, who chose Kumble for the job.However, reports had emerged of a rift between Kumble and Kohli before the Champions Trophy got underway. While Kohli denied there was any trouble in the dressing room, Kumble’s statement after his resignation gave it all away.(With inputs from Reuters)advertisementlast_img read more
