West Brom star striker Saido Berahino, who has been subject to four failed bids from Tottenham Hotspur during this transfer window, has hit out at his club on Twitter.

The Baggies have instantly dismissed Tottenham's approaches and remain determined to keep the England Under-21 striker at The Hawthorns, which has prompted Berahino to tweet: 'Sad how i cant say exactly how the club has treated me but i can officially say i will never play Jeremy Peace' (West Brom Chairman).

Berahino had a transfer request rejected last month, with Albion angered by Tottenham's continued pursuit of the 22-year-old.

The Baggies are understood to be unhappy with Spurs' approach to the deal which has only strengthened their resolve to keep Berahino.
