Saido Berahino

The Tottenham Hotspur target has enraged some football fans with his recent activity.

The Saido Berahino furore is rumbling on into the weekend. The West Brom striker has today finally deleted a Tweet that caused much controversy on transfer deadline day. The striker, who has ambitions of making the England team for next summer’s European Championships, was desperate for a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Spurs made a reported four bids for the player. In the end their final bid, reported by Sky Sports to be in the region of £23 million, was rejected and his potential switch to Tottenham from West Brom was over.

He Tweeted that he would never play for West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace again and then, just two days later, caused more anger by sharing an image of him on his way to the south of France on a private jet – incensing fans.

Berahino is currently on an extended leave until Monday, when the club will hold crunch talks over his future.

It is believed that West Brom manager Tony Pulis is sympathetic to his plight, as he was under the impression he would be allowed to leave The Hawthorns this summer.

But that has not stopped most fans expressing their will about the Tottenham target and West Brom man on Twitter – making it clear they want Tony Pulis to drop him from the first-team squad.

But while The Baggies have him, you can guarantee Pulis will want to play him…
