McBurnie charged with drink-driving

Oli McBurnie would join newly-promoted Sheffield United over the summer from Swansea City.

The Blades are believed to have signed McBurnie for a club-record fee worth up to £20m.

McBurnie has since gone on to feature 10 times across all competitions for Sheff United.

However, the forward’s goal return has been rather poor, netting just one in those 10 ties.

Now, according to Sky Sports News, the Sheff United striker has been charged with drink driving after being arrested in the early hours of Friday morning.

McBurnie will appear before Leeds Magistrates’ Court on November 6th, as per Sky.

West Yorkshire Police had this to say on the incident:

“A 23-year-old Leeds man will appear before magistrates next month after being charged with a drink-driving offence.

“Oliver McBurnie, from Leeds, will appear before Leeds Magistrates’ Court on November 6 after being charged with driving over the prescribed limit in Leeds in the early hours of Friday, October 18.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.

Sheffield United vs Arsenal

Sheffield United are now set to play on Monday evening vs Arsenal.

The Blades head into the tie knowing a win could see them move as high as 7th in the Premier League table.

Arsenal, on the other hand, have a chance to move up to 3rd, should they see off Chris Wilder’s men.
