Saido Berahino (born 4 August 1993) is a Burundian professional footballer, who plays as a striker for Belgian club Zulte Waregem and captains the Burundi national team.
Having fled his native Burundi as a child, he received political asylum in Birmingham, and credits football with helping him integrate into English society. Berahino joined West Bromwich Albion at the age of 11 and turned professional seven years later. He spent time out on loan at Football League clubs Northampton Town, Brentford and Peterborough United.
Berahino made his first starts for West Bromwich Albion in the 2013–14 season, with highlights of that campaign including a hat-trick against Newport County, and the winning goal at Old Trafford against Manchester United. In his second full season, he recorded 20 goals in 45 matches across all competitions. Following that campaign, Berahino became involved in a lengthy transfer saga involving Tottenham Hotspur, straining his relationships with manager Tony Pulis and chairman Jeremy Peace. He was criticised for his conduct and fell out of favour, scoring only 7 goals in the 2015–16 season; he did not score a competitive goal from 27 February 2016 to 28 August 2018, a goal drought of 913 days. In January 2017, he joined Stoke City for a fee of £12 million, potentially rising to £15 million. Stoke were relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2017–18 season and after a single season in the EFL Championship, Berahino was released by Stoke with three years left on his contract.
Berahino represented England at all youth levels from under-16 to under-21, and was part of their under-17 team which won the 2010 European Championship. He was called up for the first time to the senior team in November 2014 but did not play. He switched his international allegiance to Burundi in August 2018 and scored on his international debut in September, later captaining the side at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Jerome Terence Sinclair (born 20 September 1996) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for VVV Venlo, on loan from Watford. He represented England up to under-17 level.
He spent his youth at West Bromwich Albion and Liverpool, making his senior debut for the latter at the age of 16 years and 6 days in 2012, their youngest player of all time. He went on to make four further appearances for Liverpool after a brief loan spell at Wigan Athletic where he appeared just once. He signed for Watford in July 2016 for a fee of £4 million. He spent the second half of the 2016–17 season on loan to Championship club Birmingham City and the first half of the following season on loan at Sunderland before his loan to Oxford for the second half of the season.
Rushian Marcus Amari Hepburn-Murphy (born 28 August 1998) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for EFL Championship club Derby County, on loan from Aston Villa.
Hepburn-Murphy is a product of the Aston Villa youth academy. On 14 March 2015, he made his league debut for Aston Villa, coming on as a substitute the last seven minutes in place of Christian Benteke in the 4–0 away victory at Sunderland. At the age of 16 years and 176 days, he is the second youngest player in the club's history. He is also the youngest player to appear in a match for the club during the Premier League era.
