In a statement on the Spurs website, Bentley wrote: "I should like to apologise to my club and the supporters for my actions which led to my car accident last night and my subsequent charge.

"It was wholly unacceptable and I fully appreciate that as a professional footballer I have a duty to behave in a reputable and responsible manner.

"I am thankful that nobody was injured in the accident. This has been a wake-up call for me both personally and professionally."

A Hertfordshire Police spokeswoman said: "A member of the public called just after 3am to report a single vehicle road traffic collision. A man was arrested at the scene and taken to Hatfield Police Station.

"This morning (Thursday) David Bentley, 24, has been charged with an offence to appear in a few weeks.

"He has been charged with a drink driving offence and has been released on bail to return to St Albans Magistrates’ Court on August 28."
