The West Brom player also pleaded guilty to two counts of driving without a licence and driving without insurance.

Appearing at Newcastle Magistrates' Court, the Benin international received three points on his licence and was ordered to pay a total of £7,605.

The 29-year-old was stopped by police in August in Newcastle where he was found to be more than double the drink-driving limit.

At the time of his arrest, he was playing for Sunderland, who were playing a cup game against MK Dons that evening.
