London - Saido Berahino has slammed West Bromwich Albion
amid reports the Premier League club have rebuffed two more bids from Tottenham
for the England Under-21 striker.
Berahino had hoped to be allowed to join Tottenham on
transfer deadline day as the north London club stepped up their interest after
two recently rejected offers.
But Albion chairman Jeremy Peace reportedly snubbed
Tottenham's third and then fourth attempts to sign the 22-year-old on Tuesday.
It is understood the bids were only marginally better than
Tottenham's second offer, made last month, which would have risen to 21 million
($32 million) with clauses and add-ons.

Peace and Albion manager Tony Pulis are determined to hold
onto their star striker, but Berahino, who had a transfer request rejected last
month, is unhappy with the situation, judging by a post on his official Twitter
account in which he appeared to threaten never to play for the club again.
"Sad how I can't say exactly how the club has treated
me but I can officially say I will never play Jeremy Peace," he tweeted.
Berahino has been left out of West Brom's last three squads
as the transfer saga heated up, with Pulis insisting at the weekend he was not
in the right state of mind to play.
Pulis, though, had added that Berahino was not a piece of
meat and his feelings should be taken into account.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been searching for
more firepower to help misfiring England striker Harry Kane and Berahino, who
scored 20 goals last season, is his top target.For
