West Brom have no plans to let Dawson or Berahino leave

Over recent weeks and months, Bolton Wanderers fans have been harping over the West Bromwich Albion pair of Craig Dawson and Saido Berahino. The former is a defender that proved his worth and then some at Bolton Wanderers while the latter is a U21 striker that has shown his class for club and country at the respective levels.

Fans had hoped that West Brom would be happy to let Craig Dawson continue his development with the Trotters or that they would let the dynamic Berahino come over on loan to bolster Bolton's attacks but at the moment, that is not happening.

Speaking to the Express and Star, West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke made it pretty clear that neither player was leaving the Hawthornes, at least not yet:

"Everybody in the Championship would take Craig Dawson and Saido Berahino.

"But they're not going out because I like them and they're in my plans. For the foreseeable future they're not going out.

"That can change but, at the moment, there are no plans to let either out.

"We have been inundated with calls for both of them."

Middlesbrough have been heavily mentioned as potential suitors alongside Bolton Wanderers.

Thus far this season, Berahino has appeared twice as a Premier League substitute for West Brom as well as starting in the Capital One Cup against Newport County. That match was a 3-0 win in which Berahino scored all three goals for the Baggies.

Dawson has made just one appearance for West Brom this season, starting and going the full 90 in that cup win.
