Saido Berahino has been put on a special training regime by West Bromwich Albion following concerns about his weight.
The 23-year-old striker was left out of Albion’s squad for the 1-1 draw at home to Spurs on Saturday.
Berahino is believed to have been several pounds overweight after tests two weeks ago during the international break, and has now been put on a personal fitness programme.
Berahino was the subject of bids from Stoke City in the most recent window but remained at the Hawthorns, and has made only three starts for the club so far this term.
Berahino has struggled with weight issues over the past two seasons, especially after he fell out with former chairman Jeremy Peace over his failed transfer to Tottenham on September 1 2015.
It is not clear whether the England forward will return to the bench for West Brom’s next game against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
