West Brom striker Saido Berahino is expected to be fit for the start of the new Barclays Premier League season after scans revealed no major damage to his knee. The Baggies’ performance director Dr Mark Gillett told the club’s official website, www.wba.co.uk: “Saido has got a ligamentous tear of his knee which does not require surgery, but careful rehabilitation for up to four weeks. “We are grateful to the England medical staff for putting Saido’s welfare first.” While the news may be positive for manager Tony Pulis, it could also prove encouraging for a series of his Premier League counterparts with Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle among those clubs linked with a move for the highly-rated player this summer. Berahino scored 20 goals last season, 14 of them in the league as West Brom finished in 13th place. Berahino was forced to withdraw from England’s European Under-21 Championship finals squad last week after suffering an injury in training, and returned to his club for a full assessment of the problem. Tests carried out on his right knee since have revealed a tear to one of the ligaments but nothing more serious and the Burundi-born 21-year-old faces weeks, rather than months, of rehabilitation without the need for surgery.
