Adebayor's high demands

However, he has only managed 18 league goals in 47 league appearances for the club since signing a permanent deal. He made 17 appearances last season, having been granted two periods of compassionate leave. for personal reasons.

Berahino was the subject of two failed bids on transfer deadline day from Spurs and tweeted that he was "sad" not to be able to say "exactly how the club has treated me" during transfer negotiations with Tottenham.

He had been left out of West Brom's last two Premier League games and the Capital One Cup tie with Port Vale, with manager Tony Pulis saying he was not in the right frame of mind to play.

Liverpool full-back Jose Enrique, 29, was named in the Reds' Premier League list, but was left out of the Europa League squad.
