West Bromwich Albion forward Saido Berahino denies that he is taking legal action against teammate James Morrison.

West Bromwich Albion forward Saido Berahino has denied claims that he is considering taking legal action against one of his teammates following a dressing room altercation.

Newspaper reports suggested that the England Under-21 star was ready to take James Morrison to court over the incident, which is said to have occurred following the Baggies' 3-3 draw with Cardiff City.

However, Berahino has now set the record straight with an official statement issued via West Brom.

"I am not taking legal action against any team-mate. I am only focussing on Saturday's game at Norwich," he said.

West Brom sporting and technical director Richard Garlick added: "As we stated on Tuesday, the club has drawn a line under the matter. We have seven important games coming up and Saido, along with the rest of the squad, has a big part to play in them."

The Baggies are currently in 17th place in the table, three points clear of the relegation zone.
