Victor Wanyama could feature in Saturday’s Premier League trip to West Brom after making peace with Southampton over being denied a transfer.

Defender Cuco Martina and forward Sadio Mane were still en route back to Southampton after international duty on Thursday, so may not have enough preparation time to contest selection.

Defender Virgil van Dijk could make his debut, while Jordy Clasie (ankle) is still not ready to return, with defender Ryan Bertrand (knee) missing out too - but expected to return to full training on Monday.

Provisional squad: Stekelenburg, K Davis, Soares, Yoshida, Van Dijk, Fonte, Caulker, Targett, Martina, Wanyama, S Davis, Romeu, Reed, Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Juanmi, Mane, Long, Rodriguez, Pelle.

Saido Berahino could return for West Brom after he threatened never to play for the club again.

The striker is in contention to face Southampton at The Hawthorns on Saturday after the Baggies rejected two deadline day bids from Tottenham, which sparked Berahino’s apparent threat on Twitter.

But boss Tony Pulis will consider him for selection after Salomon Rondon’s trip to South America for international duty with Venezuela while Anders Lindegaard and Jonny Evans could make their debuts after signing from Manchester United.

Provisional squad: Myhill, Lindegaard, Chester, Evans, Dawson, Olsson, McAuley, Brunt, Gamboa, Fletcher, Morrison, McClean, Gnabry, Sessegnon, Gardner, Yacob, Lambert, Berahino, Rondon, Anichebe.
