Mr Haynes, who turns 20 tomorrow, has been summonsed to South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court in Ipswich for driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence following an incident on November 8.

His case was due to be heard at 10am today although the footballer was not expected to make an appearance and it is likely to be adjourned to a later date.

The striker-cum-winger will still join his team for an away match against Blackpool tomorrow.
