West Brom caused headlines today when they publicly announced that they had turned down a £15m bid from Tottenham for Saido Berahino.
The Baggies claimed that they are not interested in selling the player, but are they telling the truth or merely firing the first shots in a negotiation war? Here’s what Twitter thought of today’s news.

But weird West Brom making a statement about Berahino. Bit weird Tottenham waiting until August 18 to make a bid #weird

#THFC would be absolute fools to cast a show on all of their astute business already this summer by spending a penny over £15m on Berahino.

Was told months ago that Berahino would cost in excess of £30 million. WBA will hold out for as much as possible.

Let the PR games begin but see no change. Berahino will still be a THFC player.

It would be simply unforgivable if Levy didn't deliver on Berahino now we know there is genuine interest and bids have been made.

Remember when they said Berahino would be done in 48 hours 2 weeks ago

Agree Austin is better value for money but would much prefer Berahino small quick rather than another Kane type player.

Our transfer strategy is more than a little worrying. We brought in Mitchell for extensive knowledge of players then bid 18m for Berahino
