Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has been handed a nine-month driving ban for breaking UK traffic rules on two separate occasions this year.

The England player was first involved in traffic rule breach in March before another one occurred in October, according to a report on Mirror.

The 25-year-old has been banned from driving for the next nine months and was also handed a heavy fine to the tune of £82,000 after pleading guilty to two offences.

Grealish appeared at the Magistrates Court in Birmingham on Tuesday morning, December 15, just before the hearing as he had earlier admitted to two counts of careless driving.

Speaking about the first incident, Tinofara Nyatanga, prosecuting, made reference to a witness who observed Grealish. He said:

"When he spoke with the defendant, he said he could smell intoxicating liquor on his breath, his speech was slurred, and he was unsteady on his feet."

Meanwhile, Manchester United are reportedly considering a move for Jack Grealish as several club are jostling for the signature of the Aston Villa captain.

He has attracted top chiefs at the Old Trafford who want their squad to be bolstered in January.

The 25-year-old has already found the back of the net six times in ten matches this season. And since making his international debut for England against Denmark in September, Grealish has been called up five times.
