Two footballers have been charged following an alleged incident outside a Leicester nightclub on 22 January.

Cardiff City forward Lee Tomlin, 28, and Accrington Stanley striker Billy Kee have been charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent.

They are due before Leicester Magistrates' Court on 18 September.

Mr Tomlin, who used to play for Bristol City, and Mr Kee, 26, will continue to play for their respective teams, said their clubs.
