It comes as little secret now that West Brom star Saido Berahino has grown frustrated at his failed move to Tottenham, with the England international having tweeted his feeling's towards chairman Jeremy Peace.
The 22-year-old was subject to a £20 million bid from Mauricio Pochettino but following several bids was ultimately made to stay with a side he is clearly unhappy at.
The striker tweeted on Tuesday: "Sad how I can't say exactly how the club has treated me but I can officially say I will never play Jeremy Peace."

His frustration, whilst ill-spoken, is understandable - every Premier League football strives for greater success throughout their career, and Berahino clearly saw a move to Tottenham as a move that can meet his growing aspirations.
However, whilst the forward's outburst was unprofessional and potentially damaging to both his career and the morale of those around him, chairman Peace has directed his anger more at Tottenham rather than the player himself.
As reported on the Baggies' official website, he said: "We have a key player who has been very unsettled by antics which were designed to get him out of our club cheaply.
"Those tactics have continued despite my making our position clear in my first conversation with Daniel Levy on this subject in mid-August. I said selling Saido so late in the window was not on our agenda."
On the contrary, however, it was reported by the Mirror that Tony Pulis in fact wanted to cash in on the player, and was left furious that four bids from Tottenham throughout the summer - not just on the final day - were rejected.
"Tottenham's offers failed substantially to reflect Saido's true value," Peace continued. "The timing made no allowance for our own recruitment of a suitable replacement for a proven Premier League goalscorer.
"Saido has been unsettled to the point where our head coach has not felt able to select him for our last three games. We are now left with the task of repairing the damage created by this unfortunate episode."
Berahino now faces a battle to get his career back on track after what has been a considerable setback, with the striker unlikely to be involved in the near future until the issue is resolved.
