HITC Sport understands Tottenham failed in a player-plus-cash deal for West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino on transfer deadline day.

West Brom rejected a part-exchange offer from Tottenham Hotspur for Berahino in the final hours of transfer deadline day, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Tottenham's failure to agree a deal with West Brom for Berahino was one of the biggest deals not to go through on deadline day, with Berahino suggesting he will never play for the club again under chairman Jeremy Peace, after the Baggies turned down four bids for him from Spurs.

After seeing their opening two bids for Berahino rebuffed by West Brom earlier in the summer, Tottenham had two transfer deadline day bids turned down by the Baggies.

Berahino tweeted: "Sad how I can't say exactly how the club has treated me, but I can officially say I will never play [for] Jeremy Peace."

West Brom chairman Peace issued a statement criticising Spurs' "antics" in trying to get the player "cheaply".

"We have a key player who has been very unsettled by antics which were designed to get him out of our club cheaply," he said, in a statement posted on the club's official website.

"Those tactics have continued despite my making our position clear in my first conversation with Daniel Levy on this subject in mid-August.

"I said selling Saido so late in the window was not on our agenda."

As part of their two failed deadline day offers, HITC Sport understands Tottenham offered West Brom defender Federico Fazio, who came close to a move to the Hawthorns earlier this summer and England international Andros Townsend plus money.

However, West Brom refused to accept the offer of the player exchange as they did not feel the package met the club's valuation of Berahino.
