The transfer request that just didn't work out. West Brom will hold talks with striker Saido Berahino after Tottenham's failed deadline-day bid to sign him.
Berahino will almost certainly be fined for his comments on twitter, that appeared to heavily criticise Chairman Jeremy Peace.
His social media comments stating that he would never play for Jeremy Peace again have sparked fires between the two camps.

The Baggies chairman turned down two late bids for Berahino and criticised Spurs for trying to get him "cheaply".
Obviously in Berahino's case £22.5 million wasn't enough. Which is ludicrous. Peace has made it clear he feels Spurs are to blame in the matter, and that he previously told Spurs chairman Daniel Levy that he wasn't for sale this summer.
It appears Berahino hasn't been happy since last year when they entertained Gateshead in a FA cup tie. Where Berahino scored four impressive goals, but did not celebrate a single one.
Berahino was desperate to finalise a move to North London to form a partnership with another English prospect Harry Kane in what looked to be a youthful but dangerous English front pairing.
However, West Brom have denied that opportunity in spectacular fashion, and now have to pick up the pieces from a proposed deal gone sour.
Chairmans, clubs and players these days seem to have these outbursts and fights very publicly through social media and the press.
With player power becoming even greater over the last few years, it is refreshing to see clubs stand firm on their young English talent and not crack under pressure to sell to those bigger clubs.
Everton are another example of a club 'standing firm' under the summer long chase of John Stones from Chelsea and Jose Mourinho.
English talent these days are high priced commodities and their prices are only going up. But how much are clubs willing to pay?
Due to UEFA ruling about home-grown talent within squads the price will surely only increase. Also the FA are slowly digging their heels in to promote more and more talent to thrive in one of the best leagues in the world, to re-establish England as a footballing nation on International circuit.
But with so few quality young English players lying around the price is high. But none of them are actually worth it.
