West Brom rubbish Saido Berahino to Liverpool transfer talk

In an usual approach, West Bromwich Albion took to Twitter to quash rumours linking star striker Saido Berahino with a £23 million move to Liverpool.

Burundi-born Berahino has scored seven Premier League goals this season - more than Liverpool's entire strikeforce - and was rumoured to be close to a move to Anfield.

However the Baggies determination to hold on to their biggest asset looks set to keep the youngster at the Hawthorns.

A post on West Brom's official Twitter account read: Ok time to clear a few things up. One final time, this Berahino to @LFC story for £23m is and always has been an entire fabrication..."

Despite talk of a huge offer from Anfield, the relegation threatened side currently sit in 16th, just one point above the relegation zone, and could little afford to lose the man who has contributed over 40 percent of the teams goals this campaign.

Just watch the retweets roll in if he does leave...

The Hawthorns outfit also paid further tribute to Alan Irvine, whose managerial stint with West Brom was cut short last night.

A second tweet read: "A sombre day for staff at The Hawthorns because we have said farewell to a man of great class and dignity #bestwishesAlan."
