Ian Poveda pleads guilty to driving offence in court, Leeds United ace sentencing due
Leeds United midfielder Ian Poveda has pleaded guilty to driving offences, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
The newspaper reported on its website on 12 September that the 23-year-old was accused of driving while disqualified and driving without insurance in April 2022.
It added that the Whites midfielder will be sentenced for the motoring offences on 6 October at Manchester Magistrates’ Court.
The newspaper reported that Leeds are yet to respond to a request for comment with regards to Poveda being sentenced for driving offences next month.
But given that the incident took place more than a year ago, there is a reasonable chance that the club have been aware of the matter for a while.
That means his current standing at Elland Road might not be set to change dramatically after he has been involved as a squad player during this campaign.
The midfielder featured under Daniel Farke during pre-season on his return to West Yorkshire following a loan spell with Blackpool last season.
He played 90 minutes for the Whites in the game at Birmingham City, but a groin injury then kept him out of action until he returned to the squad in the recent draw with Sheffield Wednesday.
