England midfielder Jack Grealish has been fined £666 (€774) and handed five penalty points after being caught speeding at 44mph in a 30mph zone.

Grealish did not attend a four-minute hearing at Worcester Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, but pleaded guilty through his lawyer.


The 28-year-old, of Barnt Green, Worcestershire, was also ordered to pay £110 (€127) in court costs and a victim surcharge of £266 (€309), leaving him with a total bill of £1,042 (€1,210).

The court was told the Manchester City winger was caught speeding in Worcestershire while driving a Range Rover Sport on the morning of July 17th, 2023.

Former Aston Villa star Grealish joined City on a six-year deal in August 2021 for a then-record transfer fee for a British club of around £100 million.

Grealish, who made his England debut in September 2020, is reported to earn around £300,000-a-week and has scored three goals in 20 Premier League appearances so far this season.

The player had pleaded guilty at the first opportunity, the court heard.

Prosecutor Andy Saunders said the Range Rover was caught by a mobile speed camera travelling at 44mph on Station Road, Wythall, but there were no other aggravating factors.


A charge of failing to give information to the police relating to the identification of the driver was withdrawn.

Grealish’s barrister, John Dye, said of his client: “Mr Grealish means no discourtesy by not attending.


“I am instructed to enter a guilty plea on his behalf in relation to speeding.”

After confirming that the maximum penalty for the offence was £1,000, reduced to £666 after a guilty plea, Mr Dye told the court: “He can afford to pay that figure.

“I am asked to apologise on his behalf. It was a mistake.”

The court was told Grealish had a full, clean driving licence at the time of the speeding offence.
