A Premier League footballer has been arrested and charged with criminal damage.

Newcastle United striker, Nile Ranger, 21, was arrested after police were called to a house in Enfield, north London, in the early hours yesterday after a report of disturbance.

Scotland Yard said officers arrived at the house to find the front door of the property badly damaged.

A force spokesman said Ranger, who has recently been on loan at Sheffield Wednesday, would appear at Enfield Magistrates' Court today.
