Former Germany U20 international Savio Nsereko is today celebrating his 26th birthday.

Savio, who joined the Hammers from Brescia in 2009 but made only ten Premier League appearances for the Club, was last with Kazakhstan Premier League side FC Atyrau, but left the club this summer.

The forward spent six months with the Hammers before moving onto Fiorentina. He never made a first team appearance for the Viola and after a succession of loans at Italian, German, Bulgarian and Romanian sides, he wound up in Kazakhstan last summer.

His career featured a promising start, winning the 2007 UEFA U19 Championship with Germany, but has rarely lived up to that promise since.
