Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Saido Berahino's performance v Peterborough

The West Brom forward netted twice in the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon.

Understandably, there was plenty of interest from Newcastle United fans as Saido Berahino netted twice for West Brom on Saturday afternoon...

Indeed, according to the Shields Gazette among many others, the Magpies are still tracking the 22-year-old heading into Deadline Day and are prepared to spend big on the Baggies front man.

After Saturday's brace for West Brom, though, there are plenty of Newcastle supporters fearing Berahino's pricetag will have increased.

That said, an equal amount of Newcastle fans feel far stronger about the club making a move for the young forward. This was only Peterborough United - with all respect, a League One team - but it's still a side West Brom couldn't actually beat.

Berahino, however, managed to score twice against them, despite being severely short of game time and match fitness.

Here's how Newcastle fans reacted to the West Brom man's two-goal FA Cup haul on Twitter...
