Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka will go on trial for driving offenses in December.

The 23-year-old last month pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified, without a license, and without insurance after being stopped by police on June 23 in Manchester.

The footballer is currently still allowed to drive as his ban was “set aside” until the trial later this year.

His lawyer told Manchester Magistrates’ Court the player did not know he was banned when he was stopped.

Just days before, on June 18, Leeds Magistrates’ Court had disqualified him for six months after he failed to provide the details of the driver from a speeding offense in Yorkshire in September of 2020.

His lawyers say the letters went to his old address in Croydon, south London. Wan-Bissaka lived there during his time playing for Crystal Palace, before joining United in a £45m deal in July 2019.
