Albion given Saido boost

24 June 2015

Berahino should be fit again by late July

SAIDO Berahino is on target to be fit for the start of the season after scans revealed no major damage to his right knee.

The Albion striker was forced to abandon his England role at the European Under 21 championships after sustaining the injury during a training session last week.

Berahino has since undergone further examinations to assess the full extent of the injury.

And the good news is that Berahino should be ready for the opening game of Albion's 2015/16 Barclays Premier League campaign.

The Club’s Performance Director Dr Mark Gillett said: "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."
