Ireland international Andrew Omobamidele has found himself in a little bit of bother with the law and is due in court later this month.

According to a report from the Eastern Daly Press, the 20-year-old Norwich defender was charged last year with driving offences after turning at a junction with just one hand while holding a water bottle in the other.

He was ordered to complete a driving course and was issued with a fine. However, neither task was completed within the given time, and the youngster now finds himself with a date before a judge.

Omobamidele was recently linked with a big move to Champions League semi-finalists AC Milan, but has unfortunately missed out on Stephen Kenny's summer Ireland squad due to injury.


He has been excellent this season for Norwich, but missed a considerable amount of games last year and was forced to have a surgery on his back.


“It’s not like a normal injury that you have to do rehab on", he said of his back injury.

“My back just completely shut down and that’s why I had the back brace. I did nothing for two months. I’d get up in the morning, go in and go home.


"That was my life for six months.

“It was difficult. I kind of came onto the scene quickly at Norwich and on the international stage, obviously my debut against Portugal and coming back here and playing against Serbia and Azerbaijan and these teams.

“I got a stress fracture in my back and that kept me out for six to seven months.


“Going from all of those highs in two weeks to the lowest where I couldn't do anything, gym work, I just had to naturally rest.

“It was tough but happily that's behind me, I've no problems with my back.”
