According to The Telegraph, Stoke are considering the possibility of cancelling Saido Berahino’s contract after the striker was, yet again, embroiled in a controversy external to the football pitch.
The number 9 was recently arrested on suspicion of drink driving and the Potters have not let him off the hook easy – he is now training on his own at Clayton Wood but it could be about to get a whole lot worse for the Englishman.
Having signed for the bet365 Stadium outfit for a whopping £12m in 2017, Berahino has been unable to focus on his football and has flopped pretty spectacularly. West Brom, meanwhile, have come out of the deal quite well and will be thanking their lucky stars that they offloaded him when they did.
Who do you want to see promoted this year? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have picked their 3 favoured teams in the video below…
The Baggies have Jay Rodriguez up front now and the former Southampton man has notched 17 goals in the Championship this season as Darren Moore looks to guide his side back into the Premier League.
Some of the Hawthorns faithful cannot help but sympathise with their former hitman with his career hanging in the balance, while others are crucifying him for wasting his talent – here’s how they reacted on Twitter…
He has got problems and needs professional help.

To much money to young and surrounding yourself with hangers on and bad influences. Pulis at WBA met so much out the press if he hadn’t of done the kid would be finished by now
