Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish is facing a fourth motoring charge after allegedly driving carelessly near the club's training ground last month.

West Midlands Police said in June that Grealish had been charged with three offences, including failing to stop at the scene of an accident, connected to an incident during lockdown on March 29 this year.

Grealish was charged with driving his Range Rover carelessly at the scene in Dickens Heath, near Solihull, and failing to report the accident, in which damage was caused to a Citroen van and a Mercedes.

The 25-year-old England midfielder is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Tuesday charged with the earlier offences.

Court documents issued ahead of the hearing show Grealish has also been charged with driving without due care and attention on October 18 this year.

The fourth allegation accuses the winger of driving without due care and attention on the M42, the A446 and on Bodymoor Heath Road, the site of Villa's training complex.

Grealish was rated man of the match after finishing the full 90 minutes in his side's 1-0 win over Leicester City on the night of October 18.

Following the first incident in March, Grealish issued a video message on Twitter in which he said he was "deeply embarrassed".

In the message, issued on March 30, the Villa captain said he had "stupidly agreed" to go to a friend's house during the coronavirus lockdown.

Less than 24 hours before the incident, Grealish had launched a video appeal for people to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.
