Saido Berahino refused to be drawn into another public spat with West Brom after being denied a deadline day move for the second consecutive window.

The striker was the subject of a £21million Newcastle bid as well as strong interest from Tottenham and Stoke in the final hours of the window.

But West Brom stood firm, just as they did last summer, and the England Under-21 international will remain at the Hawthorns for the rest of the season.

Berahino famously took to Twitter last summer to vent his anger at West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace and claim he would never play for the club again.

He offered a more restrained response on Monday night with a cryptic message on the social media site.

“Everyone waiting once again for the silly little spoilt boy to make same mistake so here you go. Goodnight all and thanks for the support,” Berahino tweeted.

Privately, Berahino has made it clear that his preference was to join Spurs in the January window.

Tottenham had four bids rejected for the forward last summer but were less aggressive in their pursuit this month even though a move to sign Moussa Dembele from Fulham collapsed on Sunday.

In other Tottenham transfer news, Alex Pritchard has joined West Brom on loan until the end of the season.
