Sheffield United striker Oli McBurnie has been charged with drink-driving and will appear in court next month.

The 23-year-old is accused of driving over the limit in Leeds in the early hours of Friday, West Yorkshire Police said.

The force added that he will appear in court on November 6.

A police spokesman said: “A 23-year-old Leeds man will appear before magistrates next month after being charged with a drink-driving offence.
