Saido Berahino furiously pledged not to play for West Bromwich Albion again last night as his proposed move to Tottenham collapsed on transfer deadline day.

West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace turned down a third and fourth Spurs bid for the 22-year-old striker yesterday, having previously rejected offers of £18m and £21m, as well as a transfer request from Berahino.

One hour before the transfer window closed, Berahino tweeted that he would not play for the Baggies again while Peace is at the club.

"Sad how I can't say exactly how the club has treated me," Berahino wrote on Twitter, "but I can officially say I will never play (for) Jeremy Peace."

Berahino, though, has two years left on his contract at The Hawthorns. He has not been included in Tony Pulis's squad for Albion's last three games.

Last night Peace blamed Spurs for the stand-off with Berahino.

"We have a key player who has been very unsettled by antics designed to get him out of our club cheaply," he said.

"Tottenham's offers failed to reflect Saido's true value."
