A West Bromwich Albion footballer has denied allegations that he assaulted two men and two women at a nightclub.

Joe Mattock, 19, denied three counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and one of assault by beating at Leicester Crown Court.

The charges relate to an alleged incident at the Liquid Envy nightclub in Church Gate on 30 August 2009.

The former Leicester City defender spoke only to confirm his name and plead not guilty to all charges.

He also denied a charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice by contacting a witness and allegedly offering money to an alleged victim.

He was granted unconditional bail until a trial on 2 August.

Leicester-born Mattock, who has been capped five times by England Under-21s, joined West Brom for an undisclosed fee in August 2009.
