The young striker's future is uncertain after the events that unfolded on deadline day.
There were two transfer stories that were full of drama, intrigue and distrust on deadline day. One involved a Spanish goalkeeper and the other revolved around 22-year-old West Brom striker Saido Berahino and Tottenham Hotspur's pursuit of the player.
The London club had already been chasing the Baggies star for much of the summer, only to be told bluntly and publicly by the Hawthorns outfit that their homegrown forward, who scored 20 goals last season, was not available a couple of weeks before the end of the window.
Still Spurs interest wouldn't go away, and as as transfer deadline day passed, Tottenham made two separate bids for Berahino in an attempt to secure the signature of the England Under-21 man.
But West Brom stuck to their word and dismissed the two bids, despite Spurs seemingly gradually edging closer to a fee that, if submitted earlier, may have tempted Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace into selling.
However, the player himself then took to social media to lament his situation at the Hawthorns, seemingly saying that he wouldn't play for Peace ever again.
And the transfer deadline passed, with Berahino making his feelings well known in public, Daniel Levy and Spurs without the attacker they so desperately needed, and West Brom having to figure out what to do next with the young footballer.
Unsurprisingly, Tottenham and West Brom fans had plenty to say on Twitter about what occurred in relation to the Berahino move that didn't happen:
Plenty of Spurs fans were disappointed that Berahino couldn't be signed, for a variety of reasons:
Proper gutted with whole Berahino thing. We shld of just paid up, Levy clearly annoyed Peace. Praying Kane stays fit on England duty #COYS— Tim Croney (@TimCroney) September 1, 2015
Don't get me wrong I blame Levy more than Peace for the Berahino situation but Peace definitely didn't help at all. #COYS— Richard Smith (@richmooksmith) September 1, 2015
Pulis wanted to sell him, we wanted to buy him but Peace was never going to let him go which is why Berahino tweeted his disgust! #COYS— Stephen Wright (@SWrighty2601) September 1, 2015
West brom clearly did not want to help berahino on his career, that tweet from saido was needed! Hopefully we can secure him soon! #COYS— جين (@shaheb_miah) September 1, 2015
In Jan we will sign Berahino. Poch said it's 'love', we're not settling for a 2nd choice. Saido is 'the one'. #COYS— Jacob. THFC (@jmistry11) September 1, 2015
In all honesty Spurs don't need or want a player like Saido Berahino if he goes and acts like that. Not the sort of player we need— Jim Arrowsmith (@SpursJim) September 1, 2015
Baggies fans weren't so understanding:
Brown Ideye was only with us for one season and he showed more respect and commitment than Saido Berahino ever has #wba— Jukesy (@SxmJukes) September 1, 2015
Why are people falling out of love with football? On Jeff Astle Day Saido Berahino wore Astle's number 9 shirt. Compare & Contrast. #wba— Steven Gray (@histevegray) September 1, 2015
