Berahino banned for drink driving

West Brom striker Saido Berahino has been banned from driving for 12 months after pleading guilty to drink driving.

Runcorn Magistrates Court confirmed the disqualification and that he has also been fined £3,400.

Berahino was stopped by police on the southbound M6 in October.

The 21-year-old has been offered a drink driver referral course which, if completed, would reduce the length of his ban to nine months.

Berahino was originally due to appear on Monday, the same day the Baggies travel to Everton in the Barclays Premier League, but it was moved forward late on Thursday.

West Brom will not be making any comment on the matter.

Berahino has scored 14 goals in 25 games for the Baggies this season.
