Newcastle United defender 21 year-old Jamaal Lascelles, who is on a season long loan to Nottingham Forest, has appeared in court over an alleged assault.
Jamaal Lascelles – appeared in court
Lascelles appeared at Derby Crown Court this morning, and is accused of assault occasioning actual bodily harm at a Derby night club on April 23rd.
Lascelles lives in Oakwood, Derby, and he was released on bail to appear back at court on March 11th, at which time he will enter a formal plea, and a preliminary trial date set for the week of Monday April 27th.
Newcastle signed both Lascelles and 24 year-old goalkeeper Karl Darlow in the summer for an estimated £7M, and loaned them immediately back to Nottingham Forest.
Jamaal has played 49 times for Forest with 3 goals, and he has been capped at England U18, U19, U20 and U21 levels.
We hope this is just an isolated event, for the youngster’s own good.
