Stoke sack Saido Berahino

Saido Berahino has been sacked by Stoke City, according to Sky Sports.

The club took the action after Berahino was banned from driving and fined £75k for drink driving earlier this month.

The £12million striker still has three years left on his deal, but has had his contract ripped up.

The Burundi international is apparently considering legal action against the decision.

In January 2017, the 25 year old joined Stoke from West Bromwich Albion for a fee of £12 million and made 51 league appearances for the side, scoring three goals.
