West Brom put overweight Saido Berahino on special training regime with scales and his future in the balance

Not yet two years ago Saido Berahino was named in the senior England squad and emerging as one of the most highly-rated young strikers in the country.
His future as a Premier League star appeared assured and Tottenham Hotspur’s doomed pursuit, after four offers were rejected including a final bid worth £23 million, became the transfer saga of the summer last year.
Nobody could have predicted how it has since turned out, with the 23-year-old failing to play for West Bromwich Albion for more than a month while he has recently been placed on a special training regime to get him fully fit.
