The video, taken on March 8 and brought to light in a Sunday newspaper, shows the 20-year-old England U21 international puffing the substance, otherwise known as 'laughing gas', from a balloon before slumping down over his steering wheel.

Inhaling nitrous oxide is not illegal but it can pose serious health risks.

West Brom sporting and technical director Richard Garlick said: "I have spoken to Saido about the incident and told him in no uncertain terms that his conduct is not befitting a West Bromwich Albion player.

"Saido knows he has made a mistake. He has apologised for his actions and has assured the club it will not happen again."

Berahino said: "This was very poor judgement on my part and not the right example to be setting.

"At the time, I wasn't fully aware of the serious health risks involved but now I know, I won't be doing it again."

Berahino, who has scored eight goals in 30 appearances for West Brom this season, was also recently involved in a dressing-room row with team-mate James Morrison.

Midfielder Morrison apologised for hitting Berahino who reportedly refused to say sorry for a mistake that led to Cardiff's late equaliser in a 3-3 draw at The Hawthorns.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
