A Premier League footballer has admitted breaching bail conditions which banned him from Newcastle city centre.

Newcastle United striker Nile Ranger was arrested by police on Monday night outside a Tyneside casino.

The 20-year-old is currently on bail awaiting trial at Newcastle Crown Court in June on assault charges.

Ranger appeared at Newcastle Magistrates' Court where he was again granted bail with the same conditions.

The north London-born footballer, who was on loan with Barnsley earlier this season, will go on trial on Wednesday before the same magistrates on a charge of being drunk and disorderly.
