Newcastle United midfielder Joelinton has been charged with drink-driving and will appear in court at the end of January.

The 26-year-old was pulled over by police in the early hours of Thursday morning and subsequently arrested for being over the prescribed limit for alcohol.

A Northumbria Police spokesperson said: “Shortly before 01:20am today, officers pulled over a vehicle in the Ponteland Road area of Newcastle and arrested the occupant.

“Joelinton Cassio, 26, of Ponteland, has since been charged with driving whilst above the prescribed limit for alcohol.”

Joelinton will appear before magistrates in Newcastle on January 26, which is sandwiched between the two legs of United’s EFL Cup semi-final with Southampton.

The Brazilian has played in 21 of Newcastle’s 23 games this season, starting 19 of those – only five players have featured more times.
