Brown Ideye reacts on Twitter after rare goal for West Brom

The £10 million striker netted only his second Premier League goal of the season at Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

West Brom striker Brown Ideye took to Twitter to celebrate a rare goal for the Black Country side during their 2-2 draw with Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

West Brom signed Ideye for a club-record £10 million fee this summer - but he had had only scored once before the Burnley draw.

The 26-year-old doubled that tally on Sunday, however, as the Baggies fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with the Clarets at Turf Moor.

West Brom's struggles in front of goal have been notorious so far this season, with only three members of their squad netting more than once in the league this term.

As Opta stats show, top scorer Saido Berahino has scored the large majority of the Baggies' goals this campaign, leaving Ideye very much in his shadow.

Ideye, meanwhile, had been linked with a Deadline-Day move away from West Brom by the Daily Mirror.

He later took to Twitter with an encouraging - or perhaps disappointing for some - message to fans to deny the rumours.

West Brom sit 15th in the Premier League thanks to their comeback, with Burnley just outside the relegation zone in 17th place thanks to their point.
