Newcastle United have reportedly launched a THIRD bid for England Under-21 international Saido Berahino, according to the Mirror.

The Premier League side, who currently lie two points adrift of safety in the bottom three, are eager to beat fellow potential suitors Stoke City and Tottenham to the in-demand West Brom striker on deadline day.

The 22-year-old, who has scored six goals in 20 appearances in all competitions for the Baggies this season, is reportedly the subject of an improved £24m offer from the Magpies.

Newcastle have already had opening bids of £18m and £21m turned down for Berahino within the last few days.
