Sunderland defender Titus Bramble has been charged with two counts of sexual assault and one of urinating in a public place.

The 30-year-old footballer, who was arrested on September 28, will appear at Teesside Magistrates’ Court on November 10.

His lawyer Phil Smith, from London-based Tuckers Solicitors, said: “My client vehemently denies these charges and will be vigorously contesting them.”

Cleveland Police said in a statement: “A 30-year-old man from Wynyard has been charged by police with two counts of sexual assault and urinating in a public place.”

Bramble was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and possession of a Class A drug, but has been released with no further action over the drug matter.

He was suspended from his team after the allegations surfaced.
