Ex-Stoke City striker Saido Berahino is looking to resurrect his career abroad according to the Daily Mail.

Belgian club Zulte Waregem are willing to allow him to train with them as he seeks to rebuild his once promising career away from England.

Berahino is currently in the process of having his contract terminated by Stoke after the striker was banned from driving for 30 months and fined £75,000 for being three times over the legal alcohol limited when he was stopped by police in London in February.

The Burundi international has endured a difficult few years both on and off the pitch as a number of controversies have derailed his career which once saw him called up to the senior England squad.

Berahino has found himself in trouble with the law however he still believes he can recapture the form from 2011 when he was regularly scoring goals for former club West Bromwich Albion and on the fringes of the England squad.

The forward has just returned from international duty with Burundi at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt where he captained the team.

There has also been speculation of Midlands side Birmingham City being willing to offer the striker a trial but this hasn’t been confirmed.

A move abroad however could be good for Berahino as it appears he has struggled to be in the limelight and it might be the right move to head overseas and showcase the potential he once delivered.
