Manchester City fullback Benjamin Mendy has been charged with a further count of rape. 

The France international has been in custody since he was arrested in August of this year.

He is now accused of seven counts of rape and one count of sexual assault in relation to five women.

Previous allegations reportedly date back as early as 2020, with two counts of alleged rape happening just days before his arrest.

Mendy was charged with the seventh count last week but it was subject to reporting restrictions.

Those have now been lifted following his appearance at Chester Crown Court on Wednesday for a hearing, with his trial scheduled for next year.
