Fletcher wants Berahino to get his head down

Darren Fletcher has warned Saido Berahino will have to keep his head down if he fails to secure a move away from West Brom this summer.

Berahino has turned down West Brom's offer of a new four-year deal in a bid to force through his move from the Hawthorns, but the striker still has a year to run on his existing deal and chairman Jeremy Peace could force him to see out the final 12 months of his contract.

Last summer Berahino threatened to go on strike after West Brom rejected several offers from Tottenham, including two bids on deadline day in September, and Fletcher believes the striker must prepare himself for the possibility that he will be staying at the club for another season.

“If he signs, great, and if he doesn’t he might be here for another season so we want him to get his head down and score as many goals as possible,” said Fletcher.

“We want good players to stay here because you have to pay a lot of money to replace them and Saido is no different.

“We know Saido is a great goalscorer and you need goalscorers in this league but we need a Saido who is fit and strong and with his head wanting to play for West Bromwich Albion.

“He looks sharp and a lot fitter this summer and he is going to have a good pre-season behind him as well.

“If he signs his new contract it shows he wants to be here and he can get back to showing people what a great player and a great goalscorer he is. If he doesn’t, we just hope he gets his head down and gives 100 per cent and helps the team.”
