Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan has been banned from driving for 18 months after admitting four offences - including driving with excess alcohol - following a motorway crash last month.

The 21-year-old Scotland international, from Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, was also fined £4,500 at Nottingham Magistrates' Court.

Bannan crashed his Range Rover Sport on the southbound carriageway of the M1 near Watnall, at around 5.30am on October 23.
