West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino has admitted that he could find himself leaving the club in order to fulfil his footballing ambitions, the Guardian
The 21-year-old has just earned his first call-up to the England senior squad, with Roy Hodgson selecting him for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley, as well as the friendly away to Scotland.
He broke into the West Brom starting XI last season having had loan spells in the Football League with Northampton Town and Brentford in recent seasons. He showed potential in 2013-14 and was a regular scorer for the England U-21 side, but so far this term Berahino has been a standout performer, netting seven goals in 10 Premier League outings.
Such form has seen him be linked with a move to a bigger club, and although the Baggies are looking to agree terms over a new contract, Berahino admits his future could lie elsewhere. He said: “If that’s what it comes to it has to be that. I appreciate what West Brom have done for me and I am working hard to bring the club up. I just stay focused and right now I’m focused on West Brom and the games coming up.
“My aim would be to play in the Champions League, to be involved in the England seniors and play in World Cups and Euros. I take each game as it comes, work hard and I have a big vision and hopefully I can reach my goals.’
