Saido Berahino was devastated after West Bromwich Albion refused to accept a transfer bid for him.
It’s safe to say that not all fans of all football clubs got the players they wanted this summer, but fans and football execs aren’t the only ones who don’t always get what they want.
Believe it or not, footballers have places they’d rather be as well.
Here are 5 players who DIDN’T go where they wanted during the summer transfer window:
5. Charlie Austin. Where he wanted to go: Man United or Chelsea; Where he went: QPR
Just 3 players scored more goals than Charlie Austin in the BPL last year – and none of them played for a club that got relegated at the end of it. Austin wanted badly to get back into the Premier League but nobody – not even scoring-starved Man Utd or Chelsea – seemed to want to pay for his release clause.
